ADC – Burton St. Task ForceBy
The Asheville Design Center, the city’s non-profit community-based urban design agency, has launched a monthly series of presentations/discussions dealing with community and the built environment.
This monthâ€™s event (Neighborhood Planning: Burton Street + Holding Ground) will highlight the recent community planning work of the ADCâ€™s Burton Street Task Force and feature the documentary filmÂ Holding Ground: The Rebirth of Dudley Street.
The ADC is proud to be working with the Burton Street Neighborhood on a Small Area Plan that will foster community resiliency, empowerment, and sustainable development. Representatives from the Task Force will report on its ongoing planning process, including the outcomes of its recent community workshop.
The filmÂ Holding Ground: The Rebirth of Dudley Street tells the story of a racially mixed neighborhood in South Boston, tired of failed government programs, which worked together to rebuild their neighborhood.
