Daily Progress Article Reports on Friendship Court Redevelopment Engagement

Today’s Daily Progress article  makes note of Piedmont Housing Alliance’s work to engage residents in the plan to redevelop the community.


“Frank Grosch, CEO of the housing alliance, said Grosch said he plans to keep the 150 homes affordable while adding additional market-rate and workforce housing at the property, creating a mixed-income community.“We’re going to get through this if we all keep talking to each other,” Grosch said about the meeting with the council. “I’m not smart enough to get this done by myself. We’re going to need opinions, ideas and perspectives from lots of people.”

Beginning Dec. 14, 2015, Piedmont Housing Alliance will be conducting dozens of meetings with residents and other stakeholders. That week, the nationally-recognized team of affordable housing development experts will be in Charlottesville to begin the process of listening and formulating recommendations for the project.
