Capacity Building – $20K: The MCFRN’s Housing Capacity Building Project is designed to help the MCFRN and its community partners improve the quality, safety and affordability of housing stock in Marshall County through increased knowledge, capacity development and community collaboration. With the support of the Trust Fund, the MCFRN will update the Marshall County community profile, develop a housing marketing analysis and provide opportunities for the MCFRN staff and community partners to develop their capacity regarding housing.

MCFRN participated in Community Design Innovations through which it established a Community Design Team that developed a Housing Plan that was finalized in May 2013. In July 2013, MCFRN entered into contract with an independent contractor, to update the Marshall County community profile and develop a housing market analysis. Per the terms of that agreement, both the profile and the market analysis should be completed by December 31, 2013. After reviewing the results of those documents, the Community Design Team will be better informed to select appropriate capacity development opportunities.

Number of Units: 3

Counties & Congressional Districts Served by Project: Calhoun (#2), Wirt (#3) and Wood (#1) Counties.

226 Summer Street Lot C Elizabeth, Wirt County – This lot was purchased in December 2012. CRI just began the pre-development phase on this home. The survey was ordered along with the site development plan.

429 High Street Grantsville, Calhoun County – This lot was purchased February 2013. CRI had a hard time getting a contractor to bid on this build because of the location. As of August 2013, this is the first home in a long time that has been built in Calhoun County using WVHDF and Trust Fund money. The inspector was excited to hear that CRI were going to build in this county.

Lot South Hill Addition, Wood County 39 – This lot is in process of going through Title Review. CRI hopes to be able to close on this lot by September 1, 2013. It has a family that is already looking forward to this home being built.

With all of their homes listed, CRI has used Trust Fund money to pay for legal fees associated with purchasing the properties, site development plans, full surveys which includes a topographical survey and is required to make sure the house is set in the best location, soil treatment for termites and appraisals on the homes after they are completed to determine the market value of these homes.

Cove Gap Multifamily Housing Project – Multifamily Predevelopment – $10K:

Number of Units: 5

County & Congressional District Served by Project: Wayne County (#3).

This project, intended to be 4-6 units of affordable housing in a storm-ravaged area, fell through. The family that had initially donated CDC the acre of land received negative feedback from their neighbors about having affordable housing in their neighborhood (an unfortunate case of NIMBY). With the approval of Executive Director, Marlena Mullins, this money being directed to architecture work on CDC’s Multifamily Initiative.

Wayne County Rural Multifamily Initiative – Multifamily – $140K:

Number of Units: 17

County & Congressional District Served by Project: Wayne County (#3).

This project is focused on two developments—Lena Apartments in Spring Valley and the William and Mary Queen Store in Crum. Lena Apartments was a USDA 515 property in crisis of foreclosure. One of the three 6-unit buildings is in such disrepair that it is in CDC’s best interest to deconstruct and rebuild. At this point, CDC is on the cusp of closing the deal with USDA and has plans to add additional units to the property targeted to special needs tenants. Deconstruction of the substandard building is slated for spring 2014, with construction of the new units to swiftly follow. The William and Mary Queen Store was once the most beautiful building in Crum, but it has long since lost that title through years of deterioration. The stone exterior is essentially all that remains, but the building’s history has pushed CDC to work to renovate the property. Recently, a charrette was held, and rough drawings for the renovated property were created. A survey is set to occur in the coming weeks as well, and research on the historical significance of the building is in progress.
