Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The county is getting behind a new housing project with the hope that it will revitalize one of the city's oldest neighborhoods.
Saturday, County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani held the "Wonders of Winchester" event by showcasing their plans for the ailing community.
Winchester runs along Desert Inn Road, through the Valley's east side.
It was one of the hardest hit by the recession and foreclosure epidemic.
Clark County is repairing about 50 foreclosed homes and mixing local art to create a new sense of community.
Half of the homes will be sold to low-income individuals. The other half will be rented through the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority.
