The Fuller Center for Housing Macon is working to revitalize the Napier Heights neighborhood. Check out what's going on over the past few months!
Getting to Know the Neighborhood Have you seen our volunteers and staff out canvassing the streets of Napier Heights? As we hand out flyers for our upcoming block party, we've also stopped to talk with residents and families. It's been great to get to know the people of Napier Heights!
Derelict House Torn Down The property at 1231 Holt Avenue, donated to FCHM in 2016, has been demolished! This blighted structure had become unsafe and was an eyesore for the neighborhood. Thank you to Southern Equipment Company and Jeff Surles for their help.
Community Garden Morgan Wright, a Macon resident, has received the Emerging City Champion/880 Cities Grant sponsored by the Knight Foundation to install a community garden in the Napier Heights neighborhood. Community gardens are a great way to "grow" neighborhood pride and educate about healthy, sustainable food choices. More updates will be available soon!
Looking for 4-Bedroom Home We are currently looking for a 4-bedroom home in the Napier Heights neighborhood. If anyone knows of a property that FCHM could acquire or have donated, please contact the office at 478-845-8087.
In the Works We have a lot of projects in the preliminary stages, including the establishment of a mini-park, improving crosswalks, getting ownership of derelict houses, and forming a neighborhood association. As always, we welcome and invite community input!
