The South Euclid Green Neighborhoods Initiative is the City’s innovative response to the foreclosure crises and involves the use of almost $1,000,000 in combined competitive grant funds. The City is acquiring vacant, bank owned houses and rehabilitating them using green building methods and universal design features. to reposition the post-war bungalow as a first choice housing option. The Green Neighborhoods Initiative targets the two areas of the City most severely affected by the foreclosure crises, the West Five Neighborhood behind Cedar Center and the Bexley-Rowland Neighborhood. The City has completed four homes so far. In 2011, the City will continue to use grant funding to acquire additional homes, with the goal of completing ten green rehabilitations. In cases where the vacant homes are too damaged to be saved, the City is using grant funds to raze the structures and replace them with community gardens or green infill construction. Two new community gardens have been created with additional gardens and a new infill green home expected to arrive in 2011. Visit www.cityofsoutheuclid.com for more information.
