Good neighbors

The Edison Park neighborhood, just outside of Nashville, sat half-finished for nearly five years. The 2007 recession had resulted in the bankruptcy of the subdivision's developer, leaving no one left to finish the neighborhood. Working with Metro Nashville, Habitat Greater Nashville purchased empty lots, added street lights and sidewalks, and paved roads. Edison Park now has new life, with Habitat homeowners already moving into 17 completed homes.
