Resident-focused meeting at Athens First United Methodist Church
Despite the heavy rain, we were joined by 53 attendees for our first resident focused workshop regarding North Downtown Athens. Transportation, dinner and childcare were provided and the attendees were majority residents of Bethel Midtown and College and Hoyt. We heard clearly in this session a need for safe bus stops, affordable and accessible child care, a need for increased security, concerns about relocation, and knowledge that College is not safe to cross as a pedestrian. More feedback is captured in the Workshop Summary document.
