Fevzipasa District is one of the central and first historical settlements of Canakkale in which Romani people live. The research area which is called as Fevzipasa District was also approved as “a special project area” with the conservation plans made in 1996. Generally, the district has disordered housing pattern and two or three storey buildings. The quality of life and housing standards are so inadequate and unemployment and poverty has increased.
