San Francisco Officials Highlight Choice Neighborhoods HUD Grant

September 2, 2011 | McCormack Baron Salazar

Mayor Edwin M. Lee has released a press release about the $30.5 million federal Housing and Urban Development Choice Neighborhoods grant McCormack Baron Salazar will use to transform the Alice Griffith Public Housing Development in San Francisco.

In addition to supportive statements from the Mayor Lee and other elected officials, the release quotes McCormack Baron Salazar’s Tony Salazar:  "HUD's decision to support the Alice Griffith revitalization demonstrates that the Candlestick Point redevelopment is not only a local priority, but that the plan is also of national significance and scope. With the Choice Neighborhoods Initiatives grant, the residents of Alice Griffith and people of all incomes are assured a place in the new community. The grant would not have been awarded without the hard work of our exceptional team, led by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and with our partners at the Mayor's Office, Housing Authority, Lennar Urban, Urban Strategies, the School District, and the many service providers and organizations who stepped up to support the application."
