2021 Policy Priorities:

The Neighborhood & Local Government Work group ensures that community voices are represented at decision making tables. 

This year the work group will focus on: 

  • Reviewing local policies related to land use and advocate for improved planning and practices
  • Supporting local legislative priorities that improve the neighborhood revitalization efforts in community development

In 2021, City of Memphis announced Accelerate Memphis with the intent of activating neighborhood anchors and investing in community development projects across the cities.
