The District 7 ‘ARTery’
The ARTery is an art corridor and community revitalization plan spanning from Mass Ave and Columbia to Grove Hall. The route contains a high prevalence of diverse local businesses but suffers from numerous vacant lots, low foot traffic, and a diminishing number of public spaces. The ARTery represents equitable revitalization in historically disinvested neighborhoods. Highlighting existing public art along the route, commissioning local artists to reface businesses, and contracting entrepreneurs to activate city-owned lots, would enliven communities. Increased foot traffic also helps fortify budding commercial districts
and balance car-centric areas.
