At the heart of the Laney Walker/Bethlehem redevelopment are programs that bring the people of the community together and help build community capacity. Some of these programs include an African American Heritage Trail as well as culture, education, and community safety initiatives.
To ensure success, the City has built partnerships with key stakeholders and organizations at the local, regional and national levels:
- Land Bank Authority, Urban Redevelopment Agency, and numerous other city/county agencies
- Historic Augusta, Lucy Laney Museum of Black History, Augusta Canal Authority
- Georgia Health Sciences University, Paine College
- Community Housing Development Organizations, community centers, neighborhood associations, churches and schools
- Southface Energy Institute
The result? A vibrant urban center with an active and involved community.
