The idea is to improve the quality of life for those who live there now & in the future. The area is in the path of progress & is soon to attract new development whether we are the ones or not. The question is- what type of development? We are proposing to come up a with a comprehensive plan that will help protect the property values, clean up blight & create revenue for our community.
Please feel free to contact me directly & I will be glad to share the positives versus the negatives of a well thought out comprehensive plan rather than a possible piece-mill one…

I’ve always known about the area because my mother worked nearby when I was younger. I work downtown. I love the park and I sometimes go there to relax. One thing I’ve always noticed is the sense of community. The residents are proud and dedicated. They can be seen walking and making sure the park (a city park) is clean and presentable. I hope that you are keeping this in mind. While the city has failed to improve the area, these people appear to have maintained their community with pride despite the declining economy. I can’t help but feel that your plan would ultimately uproot them. If so, I find this quite disrespectful. I would understand if they are not supportive. You may see it as standing in the way of progress. They live there. Like others have stated, there are many abandoned projects. It is great to improve a community. The people who are already invested should be able to afford it.

In deed- one of the most historic areas in the South.
The Metal Museum is a beautiful place with wonderful art works & if you have not visited your really missing out on one of Memphis best destinations….

I became aware of this area in the late 80’s because my Army Reserve unit used the hospital for training. There is a lot of history there. The redevelopment plan sounds great.
Also, for anyone that hasn’t made a trip to the Metal Museum, I would recommend going to an event there or taking a tour.
