City Sets Stage for Talks about Neighborhood Revitalization

Hawthorne Welcher, Housing Director for the City of Augusta, will be the guest presenter at the meeting and will discuss the neighborhood revitalization project completed and being planned for the Laney Walker/Bethlehem area of the City of Augusta. Welcher will lead the dialogue on how to create a new neighborhood vision and how and what is needed to accomplish the task. He will demonstrate how the Laney Walker/Bethlehem revitalization project was completed in a once vibrant area of the City of Augusta and answer questions on how such a project could be accomplished in the Ora Lee West, Brookwood and Tom Town areas of Valdosta.
