This new position with the Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association (CHNA) requires an energetic, results-oriented professional enthusiastic about the potential of Castleberry Hill. As a community organizer, ability to manage complex issues and projects, work effectively with a variety of constituencies, interface with volunteers and build consensus among diverse stakeholders are essential skills. Passion for Placemaking and public spaces is a must.
The Neighborhood Placemaking Coordinator will focus his/her energies on improving the public spaces in Castleberry Hill, with a focus on connecting with Downtown and the Westside neighborhoods of Vine City and English Avenue as well as the AUC. Areas of emphasis will include improving connectivity between the neighborhoods, supporting the implementation of neighborhood Placemaking projects, and activating public spaces to enhance the overall environment. In many ways this position will act as both a public safety coordinator as well as a beautification coordinator since safety is linked to neighborhood beautification allowing for once unsafe areas to become useful, activated space.
By focusing on placemaking, beautification and safety, Castleberry Hill will be able to identify social entrepreneurship opportunities that can help residents, business owners and property owners and enhance the overall community. The planning support the coordinator offers will help the CHNA develop business, marketing and communication plans for social entrepreneurship opportunities involving placemaking throughout the neighborhood.
