Foote Homes makes way for new South City

  MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A historic Memphis neighborhood that suffered through decades of decline is turning the corner.

The long-awaited demolition of Foote Homes is finally underway in South Memphis.

The city's last remaining public housing project will be transformed into a mixed-income development called South City.

It's a project that's very important to Memphis' Housing and Community Development Director Paul Young who sat down with WREG on Live at 9 to talk about it.
