Habitat for Humanity Project to Target District 2’s ‘Campground Community’

The ‘Campground Community’ will be the first focus of a new project to help transform Mobile neighborhoods dealing with blighted homes. The project is the result of a partnership between the City and Habitat for Humanity.

“Blighted homes have a huge negative impact on our communities,” said Councilman Levon Manzie. “I am so glad we are able to participate in this project which is working to alleviate these problems and I’m thrilled it’s starting in District 2’s Campground Community.”

Habitat for Humanity will manage a group of volunteers who will work on a number of homes that have already been identified in the community.

“I’m looking forward to getting out there and getting to work and hope many local residents and citizens from across the city will join us,” said Councilman Manzie.

This project is part of ongoing efforts to deal with blighted structures throughout the city. The Mobile Innovation Team, funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, has already digitally mapped blighted structures throughout the city and is working to streamline the process for addressing them.
