Town taking bids for federal neighborhood rehab project

The Town of Pulaski is in the process of taking applications for single-family home rehabilitations as part of a federal housing project.
A sign notifying the public of the Dora Highway Neighborhood Housing Rehabilitation Project has been erected along Dora Highway and town officials will soon be qualifying families for the purchase of six new homes to be built in the project area, said Town Manager John Hawley.
One of the new homes will be constructed by volunteers from Virginia Tech and then transported to a lot in the neighborhood, he noted. New homes are available to first-time low-to-moderate income homebuyers.
To be eligible for rehabilitation of existing structures, homeowners must live in the project area, which is between Pierce Avenue, Fourth Street Southeast, Russell Street, Birch Street and Dora Highway.
The $3 million project, funded by Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development through a Community Development Block Grant, includes street and water system improvements, removal of blighted structures and construction of new homes. It is expected to benefit 154 people, 137 of whom are low-to-moderate income.
The project calls for the town to rehabilitate ten owner-occupied homes, reconstruct owner-occupied homes, rehabilitate four rental homes, acquire six lots for new homes, and demolish and remove six vacant and blighted structures.
Infrastructure upgrades will include the installation of 3,000 feet of water line, resurfacing of 1,628 feet of existing streets, improvements to an intersection and construction of two cul-de-sacs.
The Dora Highway project is a multi-year project, meaning it will receive a contract allocating funds for one year. After achieving specific performance targets, it will then be eligible for another year of funding.
