The effort is aimed at addressing “quality of life issues as well as housing concerns,” the organization announced in a news release.

 “The community plan will be resident-driven rather than organizationally driven,” Fauquier Habitat Executive Director Paul Linz said in a statement. “Therefore, we started this project by surveying Haiti Street residents to find out what they liked about their community and what changes they would like to see.”

In addition to local residents, Fauquier Habitat has invited businesses, organizations and government officials to participate in the coalition with the goal of creating an action plan, approved by the residents, to help revitalize the street, according to the news release.

 Fauquier Habitat is building two new homes in the Haiti Street neighborhood this year, the group said.
