A two building, six-unit townhouse project is underway at 363 E. Ferry Street. The $1.35 million project is spearheaded by Second Chance Ministries and will be a women's facility. It occupies a vacant lot that was purchased from the City last fall for $14,400.
Second Chance's headquarters is located adjacent to the townhouse site at 381 E. Ferry. It has also helped revitalize Charlie Perkins Park next to the townhouse site at School 53. Partnerships were built with businesses, public officials, the police department and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) to revitalize the neighborhood park to offer supervised activities for young people.
The townhouses will be finished by mid-April according to David Pawlik of Creative Structure Services, the contractor on the project.
