Fitzgerald Affordable Housing and Neighborhood Redevelopment

Fitzgerald’s comprehensive plan calls for fostering rehabilitation and reconstruction of affordable housing, and this has become a mantra for the city. The City is one of 14 communities in the country to receive HUD's Robert L. Woodson Jr. Award for reducing regulatory barriers to affordable housing. The City has rebuilt and revitalized entire neighborhoods, creating large amounts of affordable housing by taking advantage of state redevelopment laws and public-private partnerships. As a result, more than 315 units of affordable housing have been built or rehabilitated and formerly decaying neighborhoods are now experiencing significant private investment. Local streamlining of regulations also made it easier for developers to build infill housing.
