WHAT IS DIVISION UNITED?

Division United is a project to come up with transportation and development improvements that benefit the people of South Division Avenue.

 

THIS MEANS:

  • Housing stays affordable.

  • Jobs are accessible by bus, biking and walking.

  • Businesses flourish.

Help us plant the seeds to make South Division Thrive.

South Division Avenue is ready to grow. As it does, we want to ensure our recovery is strong. Our commitment is to find the tools to make sure the community comes first as growth and recovery happen.

 

This is citizen-driven project, and there is a seat at the table for everyone. Participation from all members of the community is critical in creating the best plan for the people, neighborhoods, and businesses of South Division.

 

No one knows your neighborhood better than you do. So far, we have learned that keeping your diversity and values intact is a priority as growth happens. We want to make sure this is part of the future growth of this unique community.

 

The area of South Division we’re planning for is a close walk to the Silver Line bus. The Silver Line is a unique asset for connecting residents, businesses and students along South Division. There are many bus stops between 60th Street and Wealthy Street.
