For the second consecutive year, the Lyndhurst Foundation has approved a grant to support a series of downtown revitalization projects coordinated by the UGA Carl Vinson Institute of Government. The foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening metro Chattanooga’s economy, is supporting projects to benefit communities in its northwest Georgia service area. Grant-supported projects include developing a strategic plan for the City of Rossville, creating a downtown master plan for the City of Ringgold and funding a design fellow to work with the City of Lookout Mountain. In addition, the grant is supporting a collaboration with the UGA College of Environment and Design’s Urban Design Studio and Landscape Architecture Studio on a regional trail project, Chickamauga African-American historic cemetery restoration and Hinkles town center storm water redesign.
