The City Project's Grassroots Effort

  • 9/01/2013

Piedmont Together believes every community knows its own needs best. Revitalization of High Point’s 11-square-mile urban core is the focus of a grassroots initiative called The City Project. As a public-private collaboration it works to generate the return of people, businesses and services to create an urban style of living; to identify and develop incentives, initiatives and funding; and to serve as a resource to energize neighborhood reinvestment.

The nonprofit has concentrated on building name recognition, holding events to increase familiarity with the area, working to recruit businesses, and encouraging public incentives to spur economic development.
