On Thursday, July 13, 2017, the City of Casa Grande Community Development Division will host an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the completion of another owner-occupied housing rehabilitation project. The home, located at 503 W. 10th Street, received a series of enhancements to address health and safety issues within the home.

Some of the items addressed throughout the property were building code violations, broken windows, plumbing and electrical problems, flooring, leaking of the ceiling, replacement of single pane to dual pane windows for more efficiency, and weatherization.

The cost to complete this project was $59,800 and was made possible through funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement Program of the Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) HOME funds along with the City of Casa Grande’s Program Income. The City’s Community Development Division has a target of nine housing units to rehabilitate in 2017, and this is the second completed home out of nine targeted units.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 10:00 am and the program will include remarks from Casa Grande Mayor Craig McFarland as well as representatives from the City of Casa Grande, the Diaz Developing Contractor, LLC and a member of the homeowner’s family.

For additional information or questions, please contact the Community Development Manager, Leila Demaree by phone at (520) 421-8600 ext. 3030 or by email.
