Huntington's Fairfield West residents attend special council meeting

Posted: Updated:

Residents of Huntington's Fairfield West area attended a public meeting at city hall Monday.

The meeting was held to give residents the chance to voice their opinions on the proposed resolution on council's agenda that would redevelop the area for residential and commercial use.

Most people there said they were glad to see that part of the city changing for the better and that crime has decreased around their homes.

The development plan could bring affordable housing units and commercial sites for future businesses.

City leaders say the project would also involve tearing down the Northcott Court apartment buildings with that area being used for commercial property.

Council members later voted to adopt the resolution.
