Powell's Subdivision (also known as Driskell Heights)
This area was characterized in the Redevelopment Plan as a low-income area, which has a large amount of deteriorated housing stock and poorly developed infrastructure, resulting from lack of private investment. The BCRA has provided assistance along with Community Development Block Grant funds for neighborhood revitalization. Approximately $2 million of infrastructure investment has resulted in tangible improvements for neighborhood revitalization. Private investment has occurred with single family home development with Habitat for Humanity homes. The total acreage of vacant and improved property is approximately 63 with the following proposed land uses: 57 acres of single-family residential, 2 acres of park/open space and 4 acres of multifamily residential development.
The primary goal is to improve living conditions for area residents and stabilize the neighborhood through infrastructure improvements, continued maintenance of improvements and new housing construction.
