The Egleston Square Main Streets organization sought to support the commercial district of this vibrant and diverse community of largely Latino and African-American residents facing major obstacles in growth and livability.
The students explored:
· What this community comprised of over 25% of residents under the age of 16 need to thrive
· How public space can be better designed and programmed to serve the active street life in the neighborhood
· How revitalization initiatives overcome the perception and fear of crime, low incomes, and high regional commercial competition to create a roadmap toward sustainability, livability and economic vitality
