The refined Greenwood Revitalization Plan underwent a change big enough to get the go ahead from City Council Monday night. Just two weeks ago seven out of nine City Council members shot down the project, but a more scaled back version passed with no opposition from council. The new plan differs in three ways, it requires less commitment for the city, road realignment will be done by 2004-2005, and the number of people to be relocated has been minimized. The city heard from people who oppose the project as well, but for now the city has a working plan. It is a twenty-unit project that will consist of two blocks. A specialist to help with the social service aspect of the plan will be brought in to assist residents. The next step for the city is the tax credit application that needs to be sent to the state by March 21st.
