The Meridian Housing Authority has been active in revitalizing neighborhoods, and now it is taking a step to help revitalize families. Ronald J. Turner, Sr., executive director of the Meridian Housing Authority, explains, “Our main intent for the Meridian Housing Authority is to transition our residents from rental housing into home ownership. These 12 units will be offered to 12 residents who are already participating in our home ownership program.” This project is a joint collaboration between the Meridian Housing Authority and the City of Meridian. In fact, Mayor Barry tells us that it’s projects like these that help to elevate everyone in the community. Turner hopes to have all of the paperwork done by the end of the month so that groundbreaking can take place on the units in mid-November with a target completion date prior to Christmas 2013.
