Pasco County, FL -- Residents living in north eastern Pasco County, are celebrating a safer, cleaner and more family-friendly community thanks to the U.S. Housing and Urban Development. 

The Tommytown redevelopment project started over a decade ago and has now been officially completed.

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday on 17th Street in Dade City, federal and community leaders came together to cap the project dubbed the largest U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funded in the state of Florida. 

The county received more than $13 million in federal funds for road paving, installation of water and sewer lines, new sidewalks and a huge stormwater management project that included storm drains and retention ponds.

In a recent Tampa Tribune article, residents living in Tommytown praised the project and reflected on the poor condition the neighborhoods were in before the redevelopment.

Cars can now drive down seven miles of newly paved roads in Pasco County and pedestrians can stroll along a paved Lock Street. 

Gone are the flooding problems in the Tommytown area that turned many of the old dirt roads into mud.

Part of the project included tearing down dilapidated homes and seeking new construction opportunities through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity.
