The demolition costs exceeded the land ..., 18 Aug 2014 [cached]
The demolition costs exceeded the land value so no one wanted the project, and it had scored a low 17 on its Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) inspection, according to C. Fred Cornforth, head of CDI.
"If this had been a patient in a hospital, it would be like someone being taken off of life support with no hope of survival," he says.
When Cornforth first visited the property, four school buses arrived at the same time, letting out all the children. "This was a neighborhood, and I knew I wanted to keep them together if we could," he says.

Building Better Communities Network, 1 Sept 2004 [cached]
Fred Cornforth, the group's chief executive officer, told the local paper that "it is so tough to really listen to neighborhood concerns and meet their expectations simply because they don't ask us enough questions.There's so much to lose for a developer or owner to run their properties the way she describes."Mr. Cornforth said CDI is obligated by state and federal regulations to keep its income eligibility requirements and to have multiple annual inspections for 55 years."It's a different era of housing.I think we'll meet and exceed the neighbors' expectationsâ€"that's our goal."
In order to clear the air, Mr. Cornforth asked the Council to postpone for two weeks its decision on the application to rezone the parcel from agricultural to rural residential.During that time, CDI and the current owners will hold neighborhood meetings with the hope of setting the record straight.
