Imagine 77

A Vision for the Decatur United Methodist Children's Home Property

WLA Studio is teaming with Cooper Carry, VHB, Civic Dinners, and Bleakly Advisory Group to produce a master plan for a 77 acre site recently purchased by the City of Decatur. The site is the former location of the Decatur United Methodist Children's Home, which was located on this property from 1873-2017. WLA is working with the project team to lead public input efforts to create a vision for the future of the property. With over 400 participants at the kick-off meeting for the project, the Imagine 77 project is off to a successful start. The project is currently in the idea sorting phase, and citizens are communicating would like to see preserved and added to this historic property through community workshops and charettes.
