FINDLEY PLAZA REDESIGN
The Little Five Points Community Improvement District (L5PCID) in collaboration with Little 5 Alive and Horizon Theater’s Little 5 Arts Alive has leveraged almost $1 million in funding for Little Five Points from a variety of sources including the City’s Renew Atlanta bond, local business funds and Park Pride support for Findley Plaza redevelopment, national arts funds for programming in Findely Plaza for 3 years. The goal of the newly redesigned Findley Plaza is to create a flexible, community driven space that is welcoming to all.
The L5P Alliance, upon it’s inception in August, has dedicated to creating a Findley Plaza Activation Plan starting with the estimated demolition after Memorial Day 2019. All businesses will be open during construction.
FINDLEY PLAZA IS JUST ONE OF MANY IMPROVEMENTS FOR L5P
Since its founding in 2014, the L5PCID has leveraged almost $1 million in funding for Little Five Points from a variety of sources including:
The City’s Renew Atlanta bond: $458,000
Local business and residents: $96,000
Park Pride support for Findley Plaza redevelopment: $100,000
National arts funds for programming in Findely Plaza from 2014-2017: $170,000
TSPLOST funds to improve Euclid Ave $190,000
GADot for Moreland Ave re-striping and other improvements
L5PCID funded development and launch of nonprofit L5P Alliance.
Self-imposed property taxes paid by commercial property-owner members of the CID to match funds and provide for staffing, community outreach and support.
None of this would have been possible without the commitment of L5P property owners.
