Grace Midtown Church

On Monday evening, June 26th, Council member Ivory Young and the City of Atlanta Department of City Planning welcomed the public to a “subarea workshop” for the D3: Westside Revive project. Due to the range and diversity within District 3’s many neighborhoods, the planning team divided the district into 9 geographic “subareas,” so that residents can focus on the issues and opportunities specific to their community.

For this event, [25] neighbors and stakeholders gathered at Grace Midtown Church to participate in a workshop designed specifically for Subarea 4, which includes Home Park.

Councilmember Young welcomed attendees via a pre-recorded video message. “We do face a lot of challenges,” he said, referring to development pressures in this rapidly-changing area. “And we don’t have a prayer without your input in this plan.” Councilmember Young’s Chief of Staff, Mi-Lan Henderson, along with Project Manager Shayla Reed from the Office of City Planning, welcomed attendees and thanked them for their participation.

Lead consultant Contente Terry then reviewed the planning process, timeline, and introduced the team for D3: Westside Revive. She explained the purpose of the workshop and how participants would be able to give feedback at the activity stations.
