A regional planner told a local housing committee Monday that a recent survey of homes in four older neighborhoods near downtown Winder indicated that only 5 percent of the structures are in substandard condition.
“Overall, there is not a lot of substandard or dilapidated housing,” said Hasco W. Craver IV, the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission’s program manager for local government services.
He said his agency has seen more substandard housing in other communities comparable in size and age to Winder.
The highest incidence of dilapidated structures in the four target areas studied here was in the vicinity of East Midland Avenue, he said.
“They had the strongest amount of that, as well as code violations in there and substandard structures.”
