91 public housing units to be demolished in South Bend

(Jon Zimney/95.3 MNC)

$1.6 million dollars will be put towards demolishing 91 public housing units after an agreement with the South Bend Redevelopment Commission.

The townhomes in the Monroe Circle public housing project have been left vacated, and will soon be demolished, leaving almost nine acres of nothingness near Four Winds Field.

South Bend will apply to the HUD Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, a federal program known for helping rebuild neighborhoods.

It will be about a year before they find out the fate of the grant application.

According to WNDU, while plans are in the works for the demolition of Monroe Circle units, there are currently no plans in place to demolish the nearby public housing high rise, Rabbi Shuman.

Former director steals six million dollars, sweetheart contracts given to cronies, next to no maintenance done. Rabbi Schulmann apartments abandoned. Don’t tell me the democratic machine wasn’t in on this. A few thousand could be missed, but not several million. And the South Bend Tribune looks the other way.

They will be replaced with tents and shopping carts.

They should never have been built in the first place. HUD is a giant grift, nothing more.
