Roots And Bloom: A Sustainable Avondale :

This groupís plan redefines Avondaleís image through aesthetic improvements and implementing strategic streetscaping to encourage community interaction. The Avondale and Uptown areas are more accessible through the creation of an interchange at Martin Luther King Drive. With the intention of separating commuter and local traffic, Reading Road north of Blair becomes more pedestrian oriented. The plan supports economic sustainability through a neighborhood oriented commercial base. They promoted this viability by creating a food and urban agricultural network that serves and identifies the neighborhood.
