Sidewalk Enhancement Grant
This $2.5 million grant will benefit the downtown Fondren historic district, listed on the National Register of Historic places, with updated ADA compliant sidewalks, traffic calming measures, enhanced beautification and landscaping along with perimeter signage for the area.
Part of a federal transportation grant, this work will upgrade the area bordered between the intersection of North State and Old Canton and continue to Glenway on the east and Hartfield on the west.
Fondren Renaissance was instrumental in obtaining the grant and continues to help coordinate and push the project forward.
