Changes in federal funding for public housing are driving redevelopment of public housing in Murfreesboro and across the nation. In response, the Murfreesboro Housing Authority (MHA) is taking the first step in a multi-phase, multi-year process.
That step is to create a master plan for the redevelopment of Oakland Court, a 76-home public housing neighborhood on approximately 20 acres between North Academy and Maney Avenues. If adequate funding is secured, plans call for the 76 homes at Oakland Court to be replaced with brand new homes, and for another 74 homes to be added there, along with overall improvements to the neighborhood. Additional development is planned to occur with Mercury Court and Parkside.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
