COLUMBIA — Grass Roots Organizing and public housing residents will host a public meeting Wednesday night on the Columbia Housing Authority's plans to revitalize downtown public housing developments.
The meeting will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Columbia Labor Temple, 611 N. Garth Ave. The public is invited. Columbia Housing Authority CEO Phil Steinhaus has accepted an invitation to attend.
The Housing Authority has hired consultants to help it develop a plan for revitalizing public housing in the central city, beginning with apartments on Lincoln and Unity drives and on West Worley Street. The Housing Authority also is embarking on plans to develop more affordable housing elsewhere in the city.
GRO representatives have said the meeting is intended to give residents more information on exactly what the authority's plans entail, how they will be affected and how to ensure their voices are heard as planning for the project moves forward.
For more information, contact GRO at (573) 443-4476.
Supervising editor is Scott Swafford.
