Apartment complex gets more funding for improvements
By SUE WATSON
Spring Gardens Apartments, formerly MI College Homes Apartments, in north Holly Springs on West Woodward, is set to receive some Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds, according to Mayor Andre’ DeBerry.
The mayor said the city has been awarded $54,197.58 to make additional improvements. The apartments were completely renovated last year at an investment of $5.94 million in federal Neighborhood Stabilization funds.
The additional $54,000 will be used to provide roofed structures over four picnic stations, install a new swingset and play area for the west end of the complex, remove and replace old sidewalks with new walkways, and install 200 square feet of new sidewalk to the new picnic stations.
An additional $28,000 remaining in the original grant will be used to pour slabs for two new picnic tables; install picnic tables, barbecue stations and new trash cans; provide a covered school bus shelter for children waiting for the bus in rain; install new landscaping with bushes and trees; and add an additional dumpster near two buildings to manage overflow.
The Wishcamper Group owns and operates the apartment complex after the city conveyed the dilapidated MI College Homes Apartment complex to the company for rehabilitation.
