South City, can we have a Life Together?
COGIC BISHOP SHARES LIFE TOGETHER’S VISION AND PLANS AS STAKEHOLDERS IN THE SOUTH CITY PROJECT TO THE URBAN LAND INSTITUTE BOARD:
NO COMMUNITY REPRESENTATION ON THE URBAN LAND INSTITUTE BOARD WAS SHOCKING!!!! WE NEED COMMUNITY REPRESENTATION ON THAT BOARD NOW!!!
Memphis, TN - Bishop David A. Hall, Sr., executive director of Life Together and pastor of Temple COGIC, presented his vision and plans this morning at Streets Ministries to the Urban Land Institute Board which had NO community representation. One attendee asked why there was no community representation- and no answer was given. The Board was comprised mostly of architects and developers.
Bishop Hall presented a PowerPoint presentation that captivated his faithful supporters and members of the Urban Land Institute Board. The presentation showed Bishop Hall in the middle of Porter Gymnasium surrounded by trash and vandalism. He laid out his plans and vision to turn the blighted property into a thriving community renaissance with a medical clinic, cybercafe’, community theatre, an entrepreneurial school, and a safe haven of initiatives for youth and senior citizens. Hall also presented the board with costs for the project and how corporate and philanthropic partners would support Life Together.
“This is why big time developers come into our community and have their way with $250 million dollars of taxpayers’ money,” Bishop Hall said. “Well, the buck stops here, referring to Life Together.
“Moreover, no elected officials and only one person running for office, Ms. Erika Sugarmon, showed up at the community forum at Streets Ministries yesterday. What does that tell you? Memphis needs to wake up from the nightmare!”
