Description

Join us to celebrate the launch of the Lower Georgia Avenue Equitable Development Project!

This is a community event for residents, families, local businesses, and other community members to learn more about the Lower Georgia Avenue Equitable Development Project being supported and funded by Councilmember Nadeau. The event is also an opportunity to find ways to engage in the project's Community Partnership, a forum to ensure the community drives the agenda and re-visioning of Lower Georgia Avenue to create an affordable, equitable, and inclusive Georgia Avenue community.

About the Project:

The Lower Georgia Avenue corridor is undergoing a change in its demographics, culture, and built environment. The New Communities Initiative for Park Morton will redevelop two large plots in Pleasant Plains and Park View into mixed-use, mixed-income communities, and will likely be the catalyst for even more change in the near future.

The Lower Georgia Avenue Equitable Development Project aims to look holistically at the resources, concerns, and opportunities in the Pleasant Plains, Park View, and LeDroit Park neighborhoods and convene important stakeholders in the future of the area. The objective is to devise an action plan of policies, programs, and practices that will help ensure a more equitable future for the corridor. A top priority is elevating the voices of residents of color in planning the future of Lower Georgia Avenue.

Current Partners: District Bridges, Emergence Community Arts Collective, Georgia Avenue Thrive, Lower Georgia Avenue Main Streets, Park View United Neighborhood Coalition, Pleasant Plains Civic Association, The Council at Park Morton.
