It’s been about a year since Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and a group of area CEOs created the Westside Future Fund, an organization designed to revitalize Atlanta's most challenged communities.
Quince T. Brinkley Jr., the new executive director of the Westside Future Fund, discussed on “A Closer Look,” his plan to interact with the community before possibly revitalizing Atlanta’s west side neighborhoods.
“We’re going to bring folks together to identify what folks are working on, organizations, individuals, developers, owners of property, civic organizations, pastors. And we’re going to sit down, and we’re going to say what are you doing, this is what we’re doing, how can we work together to move forward to improve this community,” said Brinkley during an interview on “A Closer Look,” with hosts Denis O’Hayer and Jim Burress.
Brinkley explained more about the issues that need to be addressed and the type of funding it will take to help revitalize Atlanta’s west side communities.
