Kalamazoo has been in the midst of major revitalization efforts in recent years, and the New Village Park project is an important part of that effort. Constructed in 1972 as part of a unique HUD initiative in modular housing, New Village Park represents the preservation and comprehensive rehabilitation of 152 units of family housing with spacious floor plans, central air-conditioning, and full basements. The site is located on a leafy 18-acre campus with extensive open space, and includes a rehabilitated swimming pool and playgrounds, a brand-new community garden, and a Neighborhood Network Center that offers job training, computer classes and exercise programs for community residents. Brinshore‘s partner, the LIFT Foundation, is a community leader in the Kalamazoo and Portage area in the creation and preservation of quality affordable housing.
