Port Progress / November 2016
Cincinnati-based Community Learning Center Institute (CLCI) recently launched a partnership with Habitat for Humanity to rehab seven single-family homes around Oyler School in an effort to provide homeownership opportunities to families in Lower Price Hill.
With a mission to optimize conditions for learning for Oyler students, CLCI kicked off the partnership October 15 with a press conference in front of 728 Burns, one of the vacant homes to be renovated and sold. The property was acquired by Hamilton County Land Reutilization Corporation (Landbank) in 2014 from the forfeited land list, and will be sold to Habitat for $1,500 to be part of the seven-home rehab initiative, designed to decrease housing instability that some Oyler families face. The houses, located on Burns and Staebler streets, are located right next to Oyler.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide a house to Habitat for Humanity for this important neighborhood-stabilizing project,” according to Megan Meyer, Real Estate Counsel for the Port Authority. “The property, now blighted, will be returned to productive use as a home for a family.”
