The Corridor

The College Hill Corridor is a two-square mile area between Mercer University and Macon, Georgia's downtown business district comprised of several historic city neighborhoods. The cherished area of town is more than a location – it's a movement. What began as a Senior Capstone project for a group of graduating Mercer students developed into a comprehensive College Hill Corridor Master Plan, where public input was compiled to utilize the Corridor as a destination that improves the connection between Mercer University and Downtown Macon.

Today, the College Hill Corridor is a master plan in daily action. The revitalization of the Corridor continues thanks to the efforts of local residents and organizations, including the volunteer-driven College Hill Corridor Commission as well as the Knight Neighborhood Challenge and College Hill Alliance, which are both funded by the Knight Foundation.
