Monthly Community Meeting

HAZELWOOD INITITIAVE, INC. IS NOW A REGISTERED COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION (RCO)! As such, we will at times host Development Activity Meetings (DAMs), which are meetings where certain developers must present their projects to the community before seeking approval from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). We will hold our first two DAMs on June 8th. First, DeLoJe will discuss renovations to their Chatsworth property. Then RIDC, will discuss plans for the third building design at Mill 19. Additionally, The Design Box will present the latest design proposal for our Second Avenue Business District signs that was stated as a goal of the Hazelwood Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan.
