City of Elkhart


The City of Elkhart Community Development staff is dedicated to working with the citizens of Elkhart and the Redevelopment Commission to help meet the needs of an ever changing community. From daily interaction with community members to the five year Consolidated Plan and its annual updates, the Community Development staff works with citizens to create a strong, vibrant Elkhart. We assist citizens with a variety of programs and services as detailed in the Consolidated Plan.

The department also manages the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and other projects for the Elkhart Redevelopment Commission that include the sale of renovated homes and vacant land. The renovated homes provide homeownership opportunities for families and individuals looking for a home with character and charm that can be found in older homes. The vacant land provide new construction opportunities for developers or individuals looking to build a new home or rental units in the City near downtown neighborhoods. For more information see the related pages section below for the list of available properties. If you have questions or are interested in any of the propeties, please contact Crystal Welsh at for details.
