Over more than a decade of study and planning, these dedicated individuals have provided critical expertise and feedback in designing a boulevard that supports neighborhood planning initiatives, fosters desired job creation, and creates the most positive impacts for the communities through which it traverses.

This committed and active group continues to grow in number as its focus turns from shaping the boulevard itself to tackling the intricate and multifaceted efforts of supporting economic growth in the surrounding community.

The Opportunity Corridor Partnership office is continually interfacing with this diverse network of stakeholders and community representatives in working to coordinate a long-range strategy for maximizing the economic opportunity for the adjacent neighborhoods.  This includes the input and expertise from the following stakeholders:
