Last year, we gathered partners, artists, and neighbors to highlight the good community surrounding the former Harriet Tubman Housing Site here in East Chattanooga. The East Chatt Highlight Festival was a true party, involving lots of whole-hearted teamwork (and just plain muddy, sweaty rainy WORK too!).
Today brings a Times Free Press article announcing a $100,000 Tennessee State grant to fund site planning, with matching city funds (already a budget item, pending City Council acceptance of the state grant).
Future decisions will surely affect the social fabric of the neighborhoods here.
When the time comes to put plans in motion, we encourage neighbors to speak up and get involved!
