City teams with GHS to rebuild home
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Community Development Housing Division is teaming
up with the Construction Technology Department at Gainesville High School to re-build a home for one Gainesville family.
Gainesville Housing Coordinator, Theresa Dyer, said the project is part of the city’s Community Home Investment Program (CHIP) through the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
“We received an application for home rehabilitation assistance and later determined it would be more cost effective to rebuild the home. This is the first time we’ve used CHIP funding for this kind of project. We are very excited to be part of a project like this and to work with the students from Gainesville High School,” Dyer said.
Demolition on the home at 825 Washington Street began a few days ago.
The entire project is expected to take about six months.
