College Hill Alliance
The mission of the College Hill Alliance is to assist the community in creating positive change to the physical and social fabric of the College Hill Corridor, a two-square mile area between Mercer University and Macon, Georgia's downtown business district.
Created by a three-year, $2 million grant from the Knight Foundation, the College Hill Alliance is a department of Mercer University and became operational in the fall of 2009. In September 2012, the Knight Foundation awarded $2.3 million toward continuing the Alliance's work and expanding its influence to assist entrepreneurs in the area.
The full-time, corporate staff of the Alliance administers the implementation of the College Hill Corridor Master Plan and works specifically to foster neighborhood revitalization through business recruitment and retention, lifestyle enhancement, and by catalyzing commercial and residential real estate development that strengthens the historic character of College Hill.

The Alliance's direction and oversight is provided by a eight-member Steering Committee consisting of leaders from local government and organizations. All Steering Committee meetings are open to the public and posted to the College Hill Events Calendar.
