There's no one home at unit 1945.
In fact there's no one living at any of the 440 units here at Harriet Tubman, after the public housing unit closed nearly a year ago.
George Walker, President of CityWide Resident council, says the organization formed in response to what he called destruction of public housing communites.
"All residents who are gonna be effected need to be notified ahead of time and given a chance to voice their opinions about things that are gonna take place in their neighborhoods, their communities," Walker says.
Walker says the old Harriet Tubman development is for sale...
That's one of the reasons he's concerned about the future of public housing residents.
"One of our main purposes is to make sure we can help improve on living conditions and lifestyle changes for the current ones or the ones that are gonna come after us,"Walker says.
Perrin Lance, Co-director of Chattanooga Organized for action, says his goal is to educate and empower the residents so they can control their own communities, through the citywide Resident Council.
"It's a tenant's association that has the legal authority to represent public housing and subsidized housing residents all across the city," Lance says.
But while Walker is pushing for more government housing, he says many former residents don't want to comment and haven't turned out at meetings so far.
Walker says, "It leaves us a little in the dark. We know what the overall view is, but we want to know how did it effect you? How did it it affect you? "
