Description

A once-foreclosed and vacant home, now completely renovated, marks forward progress in Dayton's neighborhood revitalization initiatives, as one of many properties returned to productive use through Neighborhood Stabilization Programs. The two-bedroom, two-bath home, at 339 N. Garland Ave. in Dayton's Wright View neighborhood, is completely renovated. Its features include: remodeled kitchen and baths, refinished original hardwood floors, new energy-efficient mechanical systems and stainless steel appliances, waterproofed finished basement, a one-car garage, shed, deck and a large, fenced rear yard. A ribbon-cutting and open house was held on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, to celebrate the home's transformation. The home was acquired by CityWide Development Corporation, the City of Dayton's development partner, in November of 2013. CityWide oversaw the home's renovation, which utilized architecture and construction services based in Dayton. The property is currently for sale for $70,000. The home was purchased using Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds awarded to the City of Dayton through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The City of Dayton sought and was awarded more than $25 million in funds to be used for property acquisition, rehabilitation and demolition, as well as construction of new housing in targeted areas.
