FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Goodbye Eden Green, hello Villages of Hannah.

New ownership at Fort Wayne's Eden Green Apartments a public housing project with a long history of drugs and crime are planning a major overhaul in the upcoming years.

Changes are already underway thanks in part to new owners Millennia Housing Management.

The company works to improve affordable housing and elderly facilities and now plans to rehabilitate and manage Eden Green which will soon get a new name, possibly Villages of Hannah.

They're already working to clean up the bed bug infestations and fix plumbing and infrastructure issues.

Company officials say the bigger plan is to increase management involvement, safety and community.

Big renovations will be coupled by community programs, increased security, and a strict screening process for current and future tenants.

That means no convicted felons, no sex offenders, and monthly in-home visits which could eventually become annual.
