More Properties Transferred to HRA

On February the 18th, 2014, the Holyoke City Council approved the transfer of 12 city-owned properties to the Holyoke Redevelopment Authority (HRA). Each of the 12 properties are identified within the city’s Urban Renewal Plan, being located within Areas 5,6,8 & 10, with eight of the properties surrounding Carlos Vega Park in the neighborhood of South Holyoke.

The approval marks the second round of properties that have been obtained by the HRA from the city, further enabling the agency to begin implementing the redevelopment in the Center City, including aggregating land for development, fielding interest from the market and identifying developers for the sites.
