A half-million-dollar grant from MSHDA will help to help pay for the projects. The grant funding provided by MSHDA, the city, the county and a private contribution.
City officials said the demolitions will eventually support redevelopment plans for each of the three sites. The development will be mixed use projects that will include a new community center on the site and create more than 200 units of mixed-income housing.
