"Most of you know the history of this hill, for the past ten years or so, was not a pretty site. We did have a lot of calls through our office about..vagrants and drug activity and that sort of thing. So when I heard the news of a new complex coming I was very excited about new life coming to this hill," Welch said.The project received financing help from the Kentucky Housing Corporation and the Metro Department of Housing.
