Thanks to the UrbanLIFT Community Grant Program of Wells Fargo Bank, GRDC was recently able to complete the renovation of three homes in Grandmont Rosedale.  These three homes had all been vacant for at least 6 months prior to being acquired by GRDC and required extensive renovations.   Without help from such funders as Wells Fargo, these renovations would not have been possible.

The UrbanLIFT program was funded by Wells Fargo and administered by NeighborWorks America, a national network of community development organizations. According to Wells Fargo this grant is “intended to help stabilize and strengthen communities.”

The homes included a two bedroom ranch home at 15103 Plainview, a 3-bedroom brick Tudor in Rosedale Park at 14529 Glastonbury and a large 4-bedroom colonial at 15875 Rosemont in North Rosedale Park. Two of these homes have already been sold, and an offer is pending on the third.  The surest path to neighborhood stability is bring new families to our community to fill vacant homes.  Thanks to Wells Fargo, GRDC is one  – or three – steps closer to making Grandmont Rosedale an even more stable and wonderful place to live.
