Office of the City Manager - Sept. 18, 2019
The city and the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem are soliciting public input on a proposed revitalization plan for the Cleveland Avenue Homes public housing neighborhood and are holding two community listening sessions and a presentation Sept. 24-26.
Community listening sessions will be held as drop-in meetings Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Cleveland Avenue Home Community Room, 1135 E. 15th St.; and Wednesday, Sept.25, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the 14th Street Recreation Center, 2020 NE 14th St. At both sessions attendees can learn more about the revitalization plan process and provide their thoughts on what they would like to see in a revitalization plan.
A community presentation and discussion will be held Thursday, Sept. 26, to present a conceptual plan based on the community listening sessions and collect feedback. The presentation will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church, 1711 N. Claremont Ave.
All three meetings will be hosted by representatives with Urban Design Associates, a consulting firm working with the city and the Housing Authority to develop a revitalization plan for the Cleveland Avenue Homes neighborhood and the surrounding area.
The meetings are part of a larger community engagement effort by the city and the Housing Authority to collect input from stakeholders, residents, community organizations and local public and private agencies before submitting their application for a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grant application is due Nov. 4.
