CodeAcross 2015: South Downtown Civic Hackathon

This past weekend, Code for Atlanta partnered with the Center for Civic Innovation to host a civic hackathon focused on making a long-term impact on the South Downtown neighborhood where the event was held. Following an introduction to the weekend's schedule and a brief overview of the area's long history, the group took a walking tour to experience South Downtown firsthand.

With everyone back at CCI, the group divided up into three teams to work on mapping the neighborhood's assets, telling its story, and crafting tools to allow for increased community participation.

The three teams included a diverse mixture and range of skills and backgrounds, and by the end of the weekend had produced some amazing work that will be used to help shape the continued resurgence of South Downtown.
