HISTORY – This project is located at the 400 block of
Jordan Lane, north of Division Road between Oakwood and Cousins. The
following link displays a site map of Jordan Lane, and the 11 lots
that are currently part of this redevelopment effort.
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.
- 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
Council member Kathryn Wilemon, TCHP Executive Director Angela
Council Member Lana Wolff
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.
FUTURE EVENTS – This site will be updated as construction
continues and new families achieve the dream of homeownership.
