    This year BCDC will begin to build the first of six “Alley Flats”; small, one bed room houses located on the backs of large lots. Each unit costs approximately $70,000 and will require 2,000 volunteer hours. We are also securing funding for several other projects; our proposed 8-unit apartment complex, the addition of 7 homes to our housing stock, as well as repair and updating of those additional homes.

    In 2015, BCDC partnered with the City of Austin to install a traffic circle at the intersection of 22nd and Salina Streets, an area where up to two dozen children regularly play and load and unload from the school bus. To provide plants and paint for the mural and island, the nonprofit raised about $1,000, while volunteers provided several hundred hours of labor to paint, plant and maintain the traffic circle.
