The Jackson Ward Community Plan brings Gilpin Court and Jackson Ward residents, planning experts, elected officials, and community members together to reach an informed, shared vision for the future of the neighborhood.
Upon submission to HUD at the end of 2023, Community Plan will be a living document that will be organized and designed to act as a guide for community empowerment and a road map for continued planning and action.
