Commission funds redevelopment projects

Macon-Bibb's Commission approved more than $2 million in funding for several redevelopment projects.

They include turning the former Hunt Elementary School on Kitchens Road into low-income housing for seniors, redeveloping the former Miller High School, building Sterling Heights Senior Apartments on Bowman Road and a new affordable apartment complex called Mallard Lakes on Hall Road.

The Commission also approved $250,000 to help Atlanta-based Benoit Group redevelop Macon Gardens Apartments.

Commissioner Al Tillman says this project is especially important because it's the only one seeking to redevelop a property that currently has tenants.

These projects are competing for tax credits from the state Department of Community Affairs.

Macon-Bibb will only be required to fork out that money to projects that are approved for tax credits.
