What we are working on...

We are currently working on two (2) initiatives to promote responsible development decisions in our community:

  • Development Review Standards: Housing should be healthy and development projects should be accountable to the community interests. We are beginning the work of designing a development review process by which projects proposed for tax abatement in our neighborhoods can be evaluated. Developing standards for development review ensures fair treatment and equal opportunity in the development process.

  • Fountain Park & Lewis Place Home Repair Fund: We are actively fundraising for a dedicated home repair program in Fountain Park and Lewis Place. The fund is intended to bring additional home repair partners into the community and to help ensure that longtime residents can age in place.

If I have questions, who do I talk to?

Not everyone has time for a committee, but we want to make sure you are in the loop! In addition to our newsletter, we host neighborhood meetings once every two months to share progress on our work in the community.
