2013 World Changers In Action Here in the Pettaway Community

2013 World Changers In Action Here in the Pettaway Community 

We were  fortunate to have the World Changers group working within our community assisting some of our elderly residents who needed their homes repaired.

Some of our elderly residents received brand-new roofs; homes repainted and new siding.  We have been truly blessed by this group that has made tremendous changes in the housing situation and lives of our elderly within our village.

Good News For Elderly Residents Within The Pettaway Area

GOOD NEWS FOR ELDERLY RESIDENTS WITHIN THE PETTAWAY AREA

The World Changers group will hold a Press Conference on July 9th at 10:00 a.m., at Mrs. Pearlie Hill residence which is 2020 Rock Street.   Some of our other elderly residents whose name I submitted for housing assistance are the following Mrs. Hattie Higgs, who lives at 2302 Commerce and Mrs. Tom Gladys whose address is 1516 Bragg Street.  If you have time in your schedule please attend this event and help us show appreciation to the World Changers with our attendance.

These houses will be power washed, scrapped down, boards replaced and painted at no cost to the owner.  Mrs. Hill will have her roof totally replaced and she is truly excited about her blessing because she has been waiting for a while.  It is a blessing when one learns how to just be patient and God will work everything out if it is within his will.

We are also thankful to have volunteers such as the World Changers which consist of volunteers who are teenagers and adults who are blessing our community with their talents, love and compassion toward mankind.

UACDC receives 2012-2013 ACSA/AIA Housing Design Education, Excellence in Housing Education for the project, Pettaway Pocket Neighborhood

dlrcdc-loggScott Grummer, Executive Director, Downtown Little Rock Community Development Corporation shared the following announcement regarding UACDC (University of Arkansas Community Design Center).

UACDC is pleased to announce the receipt of two awards from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, one as a team member of a larger collaborative.

The first award is the 2012-2013 ACSA Collaborative Practice Award for the project, Building Neighborhoods that Build Social and Economic Prosperity: Manual for a Complete Neighborhood, recognizing the collaboration between the Fay Jones School of Architecture and the Kigali Institute of Technology and Science in Rwanda. Each year, ACSA honors the best practices in school-based community outreach programs and four programs won the award this year. The collaboration involves practicing firms in an effort to construct a 2000-unit neighborhood that reflects Rwanda’s new national sustainability initiative.

The second award is the 2012-2013 ACSA/AIA Housing Design Education, Excellence in Housing Education Course for the project, Pettaway Pocket Neighborhood. Each year, ACSA honors faculty who have demonstrated excellence by providing a venue for work that advances the reflective nature of practice and teaching by recognizing and encouraging outstanding work in architecture and related environmental design fields as a theoretical endeavor. This year, two programs won the housing award. UACDC’s project pioneers new urban neighborhood templates for affordable housing in Little Rock. 

Both projects will be featured in the ACSA’s forthcoming book on the 2013 awards program and at its annual convention in March in  San Francisco.
