Incorporated in 1981, the Village Development Corporation (VDC) is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization composed of community-focused volunteers residing in Spring Grove Village. The VDC’s mission is to increase home ownership, eliminate blight, and support local business development in an effort to preserve and improve our unique neighborhood.
The VDC strongly believes that encouraging home ownership is one of the most effective ways to attract residents who will be engaged in the well-being, growth, and prosperity of their property and community. With this core belief in mind, the VDC has continually made renovation efforts in SGV to transform deteriorating houses into high-quality, affordable homes in order to promote home ownership and encourage the development of SGV’s small business district.
In 2015, the VDC focused its attention on one particular street in Spring Grove Village: Orient Avenue. Orient is one of the most visible streets in the neighborhood but had several abandoned and run-down houses that were preventing it from reaching its full potential. To respond to this issue, the VDC initiated the “ReOrient Program” by acquiring several properties needing extensive work and improving the health and appearance of the street one house at a time.
Thank you to our wonderful donors and volunteers!
