The new M & M Maison I Townhomes in Liberty City are another sign that the once crime-ridden neighborhood is about to see better days, according to the Miami Herald. This weekend, CEO of the Greater Miami Urban League T. Willard Fair spoke at the ribbon-cutting of the buildings located at Northwest 61st Street and 15th Avenue.

“This [the townhouse apartments] is the beginning of a continuing effort to turn around this community. We started right after the McDuffie Riot in 1981 and got our first property in 1985. That was Covenant Palms,” Fair said. The Urban League owns over 2,000 units of housing in the area.

Funding for the $2.3 million M & M Maison I Townhouses project came from the city of Miami and the Miami Dade Neighborhood Stabilization Program Consortium, contributing $1.2 million and $1.1 million respectively. The federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program II contributed both the funds and the land for the project. [Miami Herald] — Christopher Cameron
