Residential Redevelopment

Redevelopment of housing resources took place in residential districts in the southeast and southwest portions of the Town, as a result of state housing grants and in response to a natural disaster. The Dora Highway Housing Grant was a program designed to upgrade residential housing for qualified applicants in the project area. The grant was used for substantial rehabilitation of existing homes and if needed, construction of new units to replace residences that were no longer inhabitable in the southeast section of the Town. 

The largest effort by far was the recovery from the "Tornado of April 8, 2011". Approximately 10% of the Town's housing, located in the western and southwestern portion of the Town, was damaged or destroyed by the EF2 tornado. Initial rebuilding and repair efforts were funded by donations, with repairs done by volunteer labor with later efforts funded by a grant from the state. Projects in the affected area included the repair, restoration and rehabilitation of homes and construction of new homes to replace those severely damaged or destroyed by the storm.
