Thank you to all who were able to attend on Tuesday night. We had a great crowd of close to 60 folks in attendance.
We covered a lot of information and for those not able to attend I wanted to provide a recap as well as the January South End Presentation for you to review.
Additional resource to review:
The four main areas we covered where 1) Reminder and update on the South End Strategic Plan and how we are implementing the recommendations in this plan. The retail study is complete and will be released soon, the parking study is about to begin, $140K to be invested in new street furniture (benches, trash/recycle cans, bike rack, planters) throughout all of South End, visioning study underway for the Rail Trail, land acquired by Park & Rec for a future park space.
2) Development Update that outlines current projects under construction. In addition to what is listed in the slides, we two new developments by Camden Properties that have been announced along with a new Publix grocery store.
3) New brand campaign launched. We worked with Doggett Advertising (a South End firm) on the creative for a new South End campaign and shared some of the ads you will see in print, TV and radio. Also part of this is the completion of a new South End website… http://www.historicsouthend.com of which we also used a South End firm, CGR Creative. The blog where you are reading this will now be housed within the website. Take some time to look around. We’ll still be making a few changes along the way.
4) Finally, we discussed some of the recent events as well as upcoming events. We have a lot happening in the next 6 months in terms of events and want to make certain you are aware and stay involved!
