2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This project will support ongoing efforts to create a safer, more inviting main street by implementing plans co-created by area stakeholders, including the installation of permanent lighting pedestrian pathways an intergenerational, historical mural planter boxes signage and more.
An AARP grant supported improvements in the Beechmont neighborhood and its Woodlawn Avenue business district. Safety lighting, pedestrian-level ambient lighting, accessible parking, a parklet and a new alley name ("Beechmont Alley") were all part of the project. The mural by local artist Kacy Jackson honors the area's diversity.
