Connecting Neighborhoods Strengthening Communities

Reimagining a Key Corridor

Get involved in the City of Decatur’s Great Streets Great Neighborhoods project on Jasper Street. Great Streets Great Neighborhoods is a City-led initiative that focuses in on underutilized corridors and uses community ideas to transform them into welcoming, safe, and vibrant areas.

Jasper Street between Pershing Road and East Lake Shore Drive connects neighborhoods, parks, industry, and so much more. The City of Decatur is embarking on a revitalization process aimed at fully capturing the potential of this overlooked area of the city. We need your help to inform the designs and policies that will make Jasper Street, its neighborhoods, its parks, and its businesses stronger. Help us help your neighborhood!
