UTICA N.Y.- The Johnson Park Center in Utica held a meeting Thursday night to announce a new housing project.
62 Affordable housing units will be built in the Johnson Park area, and West Street.
The Units would be for people who are homeless, mentally-ill, elderly, and low income families.
Programs also would be available to help those people round out their life and give them a comprehensive living solution.
Reverend Dr. Maria Scates, the CEO of Johnson Park Center says the project would be huge for the neighborhood.
"Having been here in Johnson Park for 25 years, we're seeing our vision here that started with absolutely nothing, and the neighborhood is changing beautiful clean." saud Scates. "We're moving forth with our community development and human resource development here in Johnson Park."
There will be two seperate buildings at Johnson Park and West Street.
If you're interested in one of these units, you can apply. Johnson Park Center is still seeking grants to fund the project.
The units are set to break ground in the fall.
