College Hill Alliance Returns Leadership to All-Volunteer Commission

After six years in office – and additional Knight Foundation grant of $2.2 million in 2012 – the College Alliance is now returning leadership of the initiative to the all-volunteer Commission. With over 90 percent of the original College Hill Master Plan complete, a stronger community driving the sense of place, and a hip and historic town and gown connection found throughout Macon’s urban core, the Alliance has successfully completed its job and exceeded expectations. But the work of College Hill continues just as it started – with the neighbors, stakeholders, participants and believers leading the game-changing effort with the newly formed College Hill Corridor Commission and Knight Community Projects Fund.

The announcement was made during a celebration of success, held December 9, 2015 at the Tattnall Square Center for the Arts. The celebration and announcement marked the completion of the grant-funded College Hill Alliance’s six-year tenure in office and included the naming of a newly restructured College Hill Corridor Commission, the all-volunteer, community-based task force that is overseeing the continued work of the College Hill Corridor Master Plan.
