Davis Street Cottages collection
This project is an example of one use of the Community Home Investment Program (CHIP) grant in action. The "Davis Street Cottages" collection includes five cottages, construction of which lasted approximately a year. (Four of the five cottages have already been purchased, with the fifth under contract and closing mid-June 2021.) Moving forward, the Gainesville Community & Economic Development Department, in partnership with the Gainesville Nonprofit Development Foundation, has already started preliminary planning for additional houses in Midland.
Pictured in the carousel, Gainesville Georgia Government and Gainesville Nonprofit Development Foundation leaders, joined by project partners and members of the community, gathered Wednesday, June 2, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the Davis Street Cottages project, located just off Queen City Parkway in Midland.
Speakers included Gainesville Mayor Danny Dunagan; Barbara Brooks, Gainesville City Council member, Ward 3, and Gainesville Nonprofit Development Foundation ex-officio member; Audrey Simmons, Gainesville Nonprofit Development Foundation President; DaTonya Lewis, Community Housing Program Manager for the Georgia Department of Community Affairs; and Rusty Ligon, Director of the Gainesville Community & Economic Development Department.
