The Regional and Urban Design Committee (RUDC) aims to improve the quality of the regional and urban environment by promoting excellence in design, planning, and public policy in the built environment.

There are many abandoned houses all across the United States. Unfortunately, the costs of rehabilitation more often than not do not generate a return on investment. When the cost of a new kitchen and bathroom are more than the value of the house, affordable housing will never happen without some sort of substantial subsidy – and I see no political will or interest in that. This nation has lost its sense of community, as well as seeing or sharing the value of the common good.

That sounds like an outstanding program Richard. Can you provide a link to get more information; it may be of interest to any community that has vacant housing stock.
