The Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project (MARP) announced a pretty cool program they are undertaking that creates local jobs and prompts historic preservation in the neighborhood. Basically, MARP is aiming to create a local job training program for unemployed or underemployed residents that trains them to restore or rehabilite the area’s historic homes. The training would focus on the wood-frame homes which make up much of Wallabout (pictured), an area just landmarked last year. MARP is using the Preservation League of New York State to study the feasibility of this program. The PLNYS will develop a recommended program framework over the next several months and MARP will announce the program’s next steps in the spring of 2013.
