Jordan Lane was identified as having a number of substandard residential properties and in 2005, City Council approved HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) grant funds received from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address slum and blight conditions on Jordan Lane. Through negotiations with property owners, the City of Arlington was able to purchase 11 lots, most having substandard duplex structures.

Former tenants of the substandard structures were relocated using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, also from HUD. Additional HOME funds were used to demolish the existing structures, and in November 2005, a Request for Proposals was advertised for the redevelopment of the 11 lots.

REDEVELOPMENT - In early 2006, following an open and competitive bid process, the City Council approved a resolution to sell the 11 lots to Tarrant County Housing Partnership, Inc. (TCHP).  TCHP will construct 11 new, high quality single family homes that will be sold to qualifying low-income homebuyers.

In June 2006, Council Members Kathryn Wilemon and Lana Wolff, along with TCHP Executive Director Angela Smith participated in a groundbreaking ceremony.

Subsequent to the groundbreaking, Community Services staff and TCHP staff, along with Jordan Lane neighbors, shared a Saturday morning to participate in the Jordan Lane Clean-Up Day.  Staff and residents cleared tree limbs, helped haul away large trash items, and picked up debris along the street.

In January 2007, the lots were cleared and site development began.  The first of the 11 new homes is anticipated to be ready for occupancy in May 2007.    In addition to 11 new homes, Jordan Lane will be receiving a new street overlay through a coordinated effort with the City’s Public Works Department.
