SAHA TO AUCTION PROPERTIES
Over many years, SAHA has acquired ownership of some properties that no longer align with the Agency's current strategic plans, including single-family homes, vacant lots, one duplex and one large vacant parcel. The proceeds from the sale of the 80 properties will be used to further SAHA’s mission and invest in affordable housing.
SAHA hosted another meeting with area neighborhood representatives, to continue discussions on the next steps for the Victoria Commons master plan concepts. The updates at the meeting included progress on the market studies, plans for the development of the Leigh Street single-family homes, the process for the planned park transaction, and considerations for the former Administration building.
