On Saturday morning, May 6th, Council member Ivory Young and the City of Atlanta Department of City Planning welcomed the public to the first “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 “subareas,” where residents can focus on the issues and opportunities specific to their community.

On this cool, sunny Saturday morning, a 30-40 neighbors and stakeholders gathered in the Fellowship Hall of Salem Baptist Church in Center Hill to participate in a workshop designed specifically for this subarea, which includes Dixie Hills, Center Hill, Harvel Homes, and Penelope Neighbors.

The workshop began with a video presentation with highlights from the prior public meeting. Then Council member Young welcomed the attendees and thanked them for their participation. “Many of you are educators, doctors, mechanics, contractors,” he said. “But today you are going to be in the business of planning and transforming your community.” Young explained that the goal of the workshop was hear from residents and “to extract what you know that no one else knows.” He reiterated that “the plan is only as good as your investment in it,” and “this document is to protect your interests.”
