According to the KOTA report, the old Garfield School building will be converted into a 12-unit apartment complex while the area around it will have eight modular homes installed. The development, called "Garfield Green," will feature affordable housing units for single families and include work to repair some surrounding homes to help older residents remain in their homes.
The Garfield Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative was laid out in the Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity's spring 2015 newsletter. The initiative also will include a neighborhood survey to determine what area residents would like to see, reports KEVN-TV.
