We walked with the head of the New Vision Civic league on the other side of Fairmount.
She described how Better Housing Coalition worked with them in a process to identify what residents wanted their community to look like.
They wanted vacant lots filled with houses. And you can see the fruits of their vision today.
Many of the younger generations have not taken over the houses of the previous generations. They have moved away and do not have the same level of investment in the neighborhood.
Now there are younger people moving into the houses there, including the Better Housing Coalition constructed houses. What will it look like for older residents to pass on their legacy of care for the neighborhood to the next generation?
