23rd Street and Civic Center Revitalization . Richmond, CA
About 23rd Street and its Revitalization!
Calle 23 is a comprehensive initiative to develop the economic potential of Richmond’s 23rd Street commercial corridor. The focus is on 23rd Street to the San Pablo border, including MacDonald Avenue between 21st and 27th. Urban Transformation, leading the efforts, has a proven track record in various Oakland communities and working with various cities across the United States, galvanizing community members (merchants, professionals, residents, civic leaders, students, educators, bankers, real estate agents, and associations) to take a special interest to transform their neighborhoods. The result is a renewed sense of pride and place!
Ideas include engaging arts and culture to activate Richmond's rich heritage. See below
