The Rose­wood Courts Apart­ments, 2001 Rose­wood Ave., could be trans­formed into a sus­tain­able mixed­in­come com­mu­nity thanks to a U.S. De­part­ment of Hous­ing and Ur­ban Devel­op­ment grant.

The Hous­ing Author­ity of the city of Austin re­ceived the $300,000 Choice Neigh­bor­hoods Plan­ning Grant to re­vi­tal­ize the apart­ments, a pub­lic hous­ing site built in 1939, and bring a larger se­lec­tion of pub­lic ser­vices to the com­mu­nity such as bet­ter schools, pub­lic tran­sit and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, a news re­lease said.

The Hous­ing Author­ity and its af­fil­i­ate Austin Hous­ing Fi­nance Cor­po­ra­tion will launch the plan­ning process with an event from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day at Rose­wood Courts Apart­ments. Rose­wood Court res­i­dents and sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hood res­i­dents and busi­nesses are in­vited to the kick-off event.
