The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board has OK’d a rezoning necessary to redevelop the public housing complex on Atlanta Street into both affordable and market-rate units. City Council will make a final determination next month. The Gainesville Housing Authority has partnered with Walton Communities LLC, which has developed similar housing projects in other Georgia cities, to bring $10 million in cash to the redevelopment through a tax credit program.
