NeighborWorks kicks off revitalization project

Revitalization in the Beallwood community

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Community members, firefighters and city officials came out Monday to help spruce up one neighborhood in Columbus.

NeighborWorks Columbus launched their new revitalization project to improve the Beallwood community with new construction, rehabs and landscaping projects.

Their efforts started at Girls Inc. on Monday.

"The Beallwood neighborhood has a great location, it's close to town, it's great place for work force housing and we just think there's a lot of opportunity here to make it even better today," Justin Krieg said, board chair of NeighborWorks Columbus.

They will host a community block party on Thursday from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. to show off their improvements.
