Neighborhood Stabilization


The City of Carrollton is proposing to amend the Action Plans of its Neighborhood Stabilization Programs (NSP1 and NSP3) by adding “NSP Eligible Use (E) – Redevelopment of Demolished or Vacant Properties” as an eligible program activity. Under this category, the City of Carrollton NSP will have the option of pursuing new construction of housing for low, moderate, and middle-income households.

The addition of “Eligible Use E – Redevelopment of Demolished or Vacant Properties” to the NSP1 and NSP3 Action Plans will be discussed at a public hearing scheduled to be held in the Elder Circle Community Center, located at 512 Elder Circle, Carrollton, GA 30117; on Monday, August 24, 2015 at 3:00 p.m.

The purpose of the hearing will be to obtain citizen input into approved program activities. Persons with special needs relating to handicapped accessibility or foreign language shall contact Libby Duke at 770-830-2000 ext. 240 prior to August 21, 2015. This person can be located at 315 Bradley Street, Carrollton, GA 30117 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays.

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) will provide emergency assistance to state and local governments to acquire and redevelop foreclosed properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within their communities.

Carrollton-Carroll County has received $3.4 million from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs to acquire foreclosed residential real estate. After purchase and improvement, the properties will be sold to buyers who are eligible to participate in the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
