Planning Team

The planning process will be led by Community Development in cooperation with the Huntsville Housing Authority. The entire process will be overseen by HUD, and coordinated by Camiros. The Choice planning team will also work with residents, non-profit organizations, and local businesses to create a Plan that reflects the visions and aspirations of the entire community.

The Community

The community are the residents of the Mill Creek Neighborhood, the Butler Terrace and Butler Terrace Addition Housing Facilities, and the stakeholders within and beyond the neighborhood who invest their time, skills, and money toward the continued improvement of the quality of the neighborhood and the quality of life of its residents.


The mission of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.  HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes; utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business.
