Newhall Structural Program Coming to a Close

Newhall Structural Program Coming to a Close

The Newhall Community Development Program will end in the coming months. The program began in 2010 to make structurally related repairs to homes for owners who participated in the Newhall remediation program which was completed in the fall of 2012. The goal of the program was to make houses safer throughout the neighborhood by making repairs to houses impacted by being located on unstable fill material. 


“We are very pleased that we are able to help over 80 home owners to date with repairs that will help maintain  housing values and  improve the quality of life of residents”, stated Dale Kroop Executive Director of the Hamden Economic Development Corporation (HEDC), who sponsored the program.


HEDC hired TriCon Construction Services in the Heller and Johnson engineering company as professionals to provide structural engineering and construction management expertise. To date there has been improvements to over 80 homes including installation of over 500 window replacements and 30 new roofs.


The project also included improvements to basement foundations and floors, repairs to cracks in walls and ceilings and other related structural problems. HEDC was able to acquire 13 houses, many that   were demolished. Previous owners were also relocated with project funds. From now on any new applications not in the pipeline will be placed on a wait list until funds run out.

 


Finally nearly $2million in contracts were awarded to small local, mostly minority owned businesses and a job training  program was developed to train unemployed residents in the field of Deconstruction. This training resulted in the eventual employment of several people.
