CSRA Regional Commission: Picture Grovetown Urban Redevelopment Plan

Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Picture Grovetown Urban Redevelopment Plan provides a strategic five-year framework for abating conditions of slum and blight in center-city Grovetown, Georgia while creating a downtown core which has not previously existed. Led by the CSRA Regional Commission, the project combines aspects of redevelopment planning and downtown planning into a single process. Recommendations are supported by a model development plan that illustrates how residential and non-residential design goals can be implemented in the city. The plan not only provides the five-year implementation program, but also incorporates the graphic exhibits necessary to serve as a marketing tool for the community. The commission served as the sole project consultant responsible for preparation of the plan and its adoption by the city.
