Tallahassee Officials To Host Workshop On Community Redevelopment Plan

Residents in Frenchtown and Tallahassee’s Southside will have two chances next week to give input to city officials about a Community Redevelopment Plan for the area.

Monday June 3 and Tuesday June 4, the city of Tallahassee is holding workshops during which officials will give a 30-minute presentation about the Community Redevelopment Plan. After that residents will have time to provide feedback and speak with experts about the city’s plan.

Assistant City Manager, Wayne Tedder, says it will be a great opportunity for community members to have their thoughts and opinions heard.

"We're going to ask for final input from the community to say, 'Hey, have we accurately reflected the desires of the community?' And, then at the end of that exercise we’re going to say 'now what are the most important things that you want us to focus on first,'" said Tedder.

Once the City has residents' input, they will use it to help revise the plan by 2020. The current plan hasn’t been updated since 2000.

Monday’s workshop will be held at the Walker Ford Community Center.

Tuesday’s will be at the Lincoln Neighborhood Center.

Residents who can’t attend can turn in suggestions online by visiting talgov.com/CRA.
