Habitat Donates Lot in Blythe Oldfield to City Fields


Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland has donated a plot of land they owned in the Blyth Oldfield area to City Fields. Habitat carefully considered every option in developing this lot but found that it wouldn’t work within the mission that Habitat typically works toward, which is building a subdivision of homes. Instead of leaving the land vacant, Habitat has partnered with City Fields through the donation of the land to their program.

“The lot can be given new life and help continue the renovation work being done in the Blythe Oldfield community here in Cleveland,” said Natalie McNair, Donor Engagement Manager at Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland.

 “We’re really grateful for this  donation and believe it will help us accomplish our mission,” said Dustin Tommey, Executive Director of City Fields.

City Fields is a community development corporation or CDC working in the Blythe Oldfield neighborhood. As a CDC City Fields can develop affordable housing to grow homeownership in in the Blythe Oldfield area. Purchasing homes in order to renovate and sell them to future homeowners can also aid in preventing rapid gentrification. To learn more about City Fields, visit http://www.cityfieldscdc.com.
