Augusta,GA,is reinvesting in its downtown and a 4.5 mile corridor along 15th Street,thanks in part to a 2010 Community Challenge grant from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Augusta Sustainable Development Implementation Program is working to transform these struggling neighborhoods and spur economic development in Augusta’s downtown. The Program focuses on four areas along the corridor: Rocky Creek,Southgate,Oates Creek and Cherry Tree. Each community has unique needs,and concept plans have been developed for each neighborhood through input from community residents.

Redeveloping the abandoned Regency Mall into a mixed-use village center with both jobs and housing options is a key part of the project. The area will include basic community services within a short walking distance and existing public housing will be transformed into mixed-income housing inclusive of senior citizens.
