More homes in the works for north Omaha

Omaha World Herald wrote:More than a dozen vacant lots in north Omaha may be filled with single family homes under a new Holy Name Housing Corp. proposal.  The nonprofit organization hopes to build 12 affordable homes on properties located near 30th and Miami Streets and 22nd Street and Willis Avenue. The organization also hopes to renovate two homes near 46th and Fort Streets and one near 42nd and Burdette Streets.  It's part of an effort to rebuild north Omaha neighborhoods by promoting homeownership and giving low-income people the opportunity to purchase homes, said Sister Marilyn Ross, the group's executive director.

This is an awesome project.  It should help boost a very neglected area.  I'
m glad to see stuff like this happening here in Omaha.  Should keep the city somewhat healthier then what is was.
