ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — On Wednesday, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors has approved $2.5 million for the second phase of the Southwood redevelopment project.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville asked for the money to keep the project moving forward.

This funding would be used to improve the sewer and septic systems serving the 150 families currently living in the old mobile home park.

It would help the residents remain in their existing homes during the ongoing redevelopment work that is putting in multiple new structures.

Additionally, the funding would cover two permanent connections to the county sewer that will serve the redeveloped community and surrounding areas.

“The more we can put into this and keep that project moving is, I would support that. Completely,” said Supervisor Ann Mallek, White Hall District.

The entire redevelopment project has been a massive undertaking that will ultimately replace all of the old mobile home park with permanent, mixed-use housing and buildings.
