Welcome to Pleasant
Pleasant Plains is
a culturally rich and diverse community which is now seeing the benefit of new
development and community interest. Its
main attraction is the stretch of Georgia Ave from Florida Ave. to Spring Rd. This
once segregated African-American community over time has been a focal point for
the best and the brightest in education, industry and small businesses. Many of its businesses and institutions have
been around since the 30s and are still going strong.
Pleasant Plains neighborhood boundaries are from Florida Ave. on the south,
Spring Rd. on the north, Georgia Ave. on the east and 14th St. on the west.
The Pleasant Plains Civic Association, The Emergence Community Arts
Collective and Mentoring Works 2 have created the Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force as a
vehicle for keeping the neighborhood informed about the community.
What is the GACDTF?
GACDTF is a community group representing merchants, non-profit organizations, individual
community residents, and other stakeholders on Lower Georgia Avenue. It was founded in December of 2009 to promote
active citizen involvement in the redevelopment of Georgia Avenue. The focus of the Task Force is the stretch of
Georgia Avenue from New Hampshire Avenue to S St, with the two blocks east and
west of Georgia Avenue included in our scope.
We meet every 2nd Monday and 4th Wednesday
each month. A two year report on our progress is
