Decatur Legacy Park Housing is the focus of an upcoming workshop. (City of Decatur)
DECATUR, GA — A workshop is set for this Saturday that focuses on the Decatur Legacy Park master plan. The event is being hosted by the city of Decatur, according to this announcement:
"The Legacy Park master planning process wasn’t just an exercise in visioning. It was also a means by which the Decatur community voiced and prioritized its values. Those values — like sustainability, recreation, and preservation — are now embedded in our long-term goals for the property.
"The property’s master plan identifies two areas — the North and South Villages — for housing. But exactly what form should such housing take? What scale and design can best address this pressing need while also remaining sensitive to the character of the historic campus and its surrounding neighborhoods?
Please join us Saturday, April 13, from 9am-noon as we drill down on exactly how, within the context of Decatur Legacy Park, we might serve that need most effectively. This is a pivotal, hands-on opportunity for affordable housing stakeholders and the broader Decatur community to make a substantive contribution to our city’s long-term affordability, as well as to the related diversity and inclusion ambitions that inform it. A facilitated, 3-hour event, the workshop is open to all and will focus on activities — both indoors and, weather-permitting, outdoors — that help visualize and rank different housing approaches."
The event will be held at the gymnasium at 500 S. Columbia Drive in Decatur.
