On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, Habitat for Humanity's Christine Hmiel, MPP '08
& Sara Rising, MPA '12
hosted a tour of Albany's Sheridan Hollow neighborhood for a group of Rockefeller College alumni and students. The Sheridan Hollow Redevelopment Partnership was born out of a collaboration between Habitat and many public and private partners, including the City of Albany and the Touhey Homeownership Foundation, to redevelop Sheridan Hollow as a mixed-income, mixed-use sustainable community. This comprehensive project will effect broad change by creating opportunities for affordable homeownership, quality rental housing, new retail and commercial investments, streetscape improvements, enhanced public safety and neighborhood revitalization. The tour enabled Rockefeller alumni and students to get a closer look at community redevelopment in action.
