Old City Community Fund

Collaborative volunteers worked with the Old City Community Fund to convene stakeholders together to develop a conceptual design for a new pocket park on a small parcel allocated for community use by the developers of The National. The Old City Community Fund operates as the nonprofit complement to the Old City District, a municipal authority and business improvement district with a mission to maintain and improve the dynamic Old City neighborhood.
