Mayor Sarno and Housing Director McCafferty Meet with Retired Housing Court Judge Fein on Vacant Home Pilot Program

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Director of Housing Gerry McCafferty met with retired First Justice for the Western Division of the Massachusetts House Court Dina Fein today to discuss a pilot program that will help move vacant Springfield houses from receivership to homeownership opportunities.

Mayor Sarno states, “I deeply appreciate the Honorable Judge Dina Fein for taking the time to meet with me and Housing Director Gerry McCafferty to discuss this Housing Pilot Program that would help turn around vacant and abandoned properties and turn them into homeownership opportunities for our residents.  This program will complement our popular First Time Home Buyers and Buy Springfield Now programs which is a collaboration of public, non-profit and private sector organizations to promote homeownership opportunities throughout the City of Springfield.  As Judge Fein stated, this pilot program will capitalize on an initial investment for re-investment opportunities and will move Springfield homes from receivership to homeownership.  It is a win-win.  I am looking forward to continuing to work with her as we expand our prior partnership in the future to move this program forward directly to homeowner occupied opportunities for the benefit of our residents and to strengthen our neighborhoods.”
