A mix of 35 Nurture and Accelerate Anchors identified in Memphis 3.0 are receiving $400,000 each in early stage investments.  Investments include public art, new sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, and street lighting.  These implementation projects  signal public sector investment in these anchor areas and are intended to serve as a catalyst for additional opportunities.

The Memphis Community Improvement Guide was initially developed to support public engagement efforts for the 35 early stage investment projects.  The guide was reworked to serve as a resource for neighborhood organizations and residents interested in planning and implementing small-scale community improvements projects on their own or in conjunction with the City.  The guide includes information of the cost of an improvement, who is responsible for maintenance, and how to start the project process.
