Committee Discusses How to Revitalize the Jeff Davis Corridor

The committee says investing in the Falling Creek Park area is the key to revitalization. They recommend cleaning up the park itself and improving the area surrounding the park. This could raise property values to over $300 Million.

They say the area can also handle up to 600 new multi-family houses.

Dan Cohen is Director of the committee: 

“I would argue that that’s the kind of investment that’s really needed to actually help jumpstart this particular corridor and the marketplace.”

 

Cohen says the committee plans to wrap up their work by the end of this year. They want to make sure their recommendations are approved before a new Board of Supervisors takes over in 2020.

Cohen will give a final presentation to the Board later this month.
