The Existing Conditions Data Book is a curated collection of data, maps and information about the Target Neighborhood to illustrate current conditions in the East Rome Choice Neighborhood Planning Area. Doing so helps contextualize the goals, objectives, and strategies that will be developed in the planning process.
If you were not able to attend the Housing Design Workshop #1, don’t worry!! A link to the meeting notes are below to read everything that was discussed. All meeting notes and planning materials can be found in the Presentations and Reports page of the website.

Welcome to the Project Website for the East Rome Choice Neighborhood Plan!
The City of Rome, Georgia and the Northwest Georgia Housing Authority (NWGHA) has recently received a Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) Planning Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to study how to provide better housing, improved schools and youth programs, additional educational opportunities, better transportation, and access to jobs to the residents of the East Rome community.
This Plan will address how to best revitalize the distressed John Graham Homes and build off of other local efforts such as the demolition of the former Altoview Terrace Homes to help make East Rome a better place to live. We invite everyone to be a part of this exciting action-oriented process. Please take a look around this website to learn more about the East Rome Choice Neighborhood Plan, view and download our project materials as they are posted, and leave us a comment with your feedback!
