CASE and Michigan Dealers Donate Equipment to Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity for Urban Renewal/Recovery Project
The ongoing project involves the redevelopment of the Roosevelt Park neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan—a large area that had been hit hard by poverty, urban blight and the foreclosure crisis, but is now seeing a strong resurgence due to community involvement. Slated for completion in 2022, the comprehensive renewal project required the removal of approximately 7-million pounds of debris, and upon completion will include single- and multi-family homes, retail, green space as well as a new high school that will house more than 500 students from the local community.
Operations like Fearless Mary allow Team Rubicon volunteers to get hands-on equipment training before deploying to real-world disaster response operations. Some of the volunteers that participated in this operation—from both CASE and Team Rubicon—transferred to recovery and cleanup operations in response to Hurricane Harvey.
