Partnerships and momentum

When Nicki Braxley, BTI’s champion, left for a year of work in Africa last summer, we thought it was the perfect time to solidify a partnership with our neighbors in Old Fourth Ward. Donell Woodson joined our rowdy group back then and brings not only a wealth of community action experience but also a slew of wonderful ideas and energy. He’s been pounding the pavement on behalf of BTI, and thanks to his hard work we’re now ready to start putting some plans into action for 2015!

There’s lots going on in our corner of Atlanta – the Edgewood Trolley, Krog Street Market and, of course, the Atlanta Beltline, to name a few.

Some other things happening around us:
YoBoulevard! continues their wonderful work
A new bond referendum offers some interesting possibilities for growth
The Parmalat complex looks to be the next great development on Memorial

BTI will be working in partnership with some of these initiatives this year, and on our own projects as well, to help make our communities even brighter and more vibrant. Stay tuned for more details, updates, and opportunities to get involved!
