COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
The Ujima CDC is planning a first-class Senior Housing and Retirement Village project. The site will contain a multi-level living facility consisting of 28 one bedroom units and 22 single-story duplex units that feature two bedroom units, patios and a carport. Both will be handicapped-accessible. Residents will also have the advantage of a community center on the site that contains a banquet hall, exercise rooms, meeting areas, and other amenities. Wellness and recreational opportunities will be provided on-site in order to maintain and improve the health, safety and well-being of residents of the complex and others in the target area.
Ujima anticipates a positive impact to the neighborhood of Northeast Winston Salem, North Carolina. A well-planned and designed senior citizen housing facility, coupled with cooperation of the residents of the facility and the neighborhood will result in significant enhancement in the quality of life for up to 2,000 citizens in the local area.
In an effort to involve community participation in all aspects of the proposed project, including project planning, design, and implementation, the Public Relations Committee was established. The committee is a liason with small businesses in the community, as well as community-based organizations (CBO's), in the target community.
