We bring hope and momentum to forgotten communities.
Divestment, crime, highway intrusion, and so many other things have blighted your lovely urban neighborhoods. When investments do occur they are not planned or balanced with proper public policy and often lead to economic and cultural gentrification.
We can help breathe life back into your neighborhood. Together we will get you on a sustainable track to bring in new investment while also effectively supporting the ability of those already living there to stay and be part of the growth.
Just let us know what you need!
In his 14 years as the Executive Director of the Franklinton CDC Jim Sweeney and team led the effort to revitalize the Columbus, Ohio neighborhood aka “The Bottoms”. The FDA was named "Ohio CDC of the year" in 2009 and Jim was "Columbus Arts Partner of the Year in 2013." He was the visionary behind the revitalization of East Franklinton as a permanent arts destination and led the way to make it happen. Most notably Jim stood up the Columbus Idea Foundry in Franklinton - now an anchor of neighborhood revitalization and the hub of the region's entrepreneurial energy. Jim and his team are ready to bring that formula to your community.
