The DeKalb City Council will hold a second listening session on the community’s ideas for the Hillcrest/Blackhawk property on Sept. 12.
As part of $4.5 million the City has invested in the Annie Glidden North neighborhood, $2.5 million was directed to acquiring and clearing the 4.9-acre property that was the former site of Campus Cinemas and the Hunter Hillcrest shopping center.
Collecting public input on the best possible uses for the property at West Hillcrest Drive and Blackhawk Road is the next step in the redevelopment process.
The Council heard from a cross section of the community during the first listening session on July 25. The second session is scheduled for the Council’s meeting on Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. in the Yusunas Meeting Room at the DeKalb Public Library.
Additional listening sessions will be held by Opportunity DeKalb, a nonprofit organization implementing the Annie Glidden North Revitalization Plan.
The input that is gathered will be used to create a development profile for circulation to prospective development interests.
