San Bernardino neighborhood receives HUD recognition

The Economic Development Agency of San Bernardino accepted an award from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for its neighborhood stabilization project at Eastpoint Village in San Bernardino.

The project, which began in 2009, took a federal grant to stabilize communities after foreclosures to redevelop Eastpointe Village, a formerly blighted neighborhood of multi-family units at 19th Avenue and Sunrise Lane.

HUD’s Spirit Awards are given to projects that capture the spirit of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The city agency used $2.7 million in NSP funds and $3 million in local housing funds to complete the project.

“In a relatively short period of time, tremendous progress has been made to reshape this community,” said Emil Marzullo, Economic Development Agency interim executive director.  “It is an honor to be recognized for the exemplary labor and accomplishments shown by our team. Reducing blight and stabilizing our neighborhoods is important to providing residents quality of life.”
