The Manchester Housing Authority and the Manchester Affordable Housing Trust are exploring options for redeveloping the Manchester Housing Authority sites at Newport Park, The Plains and Loading Place Road to improve the condition of existing units and expand the number of units on each site. 

The MHA properties are aging, lack accessibility and have limited resources for maintenance and upgrades.  The MHA and MAHT are committed to working with residents of the MHA properties, neighbors, the Town and the State to identify options for improving these housing complexes, building more affordable housing and creating a sustainable source of funding for operations and maintenance in perpetuity.

A recent study has identified how the MHA working with a qualified Development Partner could redevelop the sites and the current DPW site on Pleasant Street to meet project goals.
