Macon-Bibb completes 5 x 5 Program in Kings Park

Macon-Bibb County recently completed the second round of its 5 x 5 Neighborhood Improvement Program in District 3 by focusing on the Kings Park neighborhood, and Commissioner Lucas, residents, and departments hosted a press event prior to Macon-Bibb County departments beginning work.

Working with Commissioner Elaine Lucas, the neighborhood was identified as having significant blight issues, as well as some improvements that need to be made at the recently reopened community center and the playground.

“Kings Park is in great need of our support and focused effort, and I’m very pleased Macon-Bibb has selected them for the next round of the 5 x 5 Program,” says District 3 Commissioner Elaine Lucas. “Beyond those services, our Economic and Community Development, Facilities Management, and Recreation Departments are going above and beyond to get the Community Center reopened and the playground upgraded.”

“By focusing our efforts, we can have a more visible and sustainable impact in our neighborhoods and help them begin to turn around years of decline and neglect,” says Macon-Bibb Mayor Robert Reichert. “The people of Kings Park have come together as a neighborhood and community to end that decline, and we’re delighted to help get that started in a big way.”
