Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville is getting input from the residents of Southwood Mobile Home Park about the future of their community.
On Thursday, Habitat for Humanity gave an update on the redevelopment project to the Creciendo Juntos organization. They say they have spent the last year-and-a-half sharing their goals with the Southwood residents, but they want the residents to play an active role in the project.
"Right now our focus is on promoting interactions among the residents of the community, allowing them to begin thinking about their future stories, and so what do they want as the community is redeveloped and how do they think they can contribute to that," Deputy Director Ryan Jacob said.
Officials with Habitat for Humanity plan to begin the actual building process in 2016.
