To revitalize Macon's historic neighborhoods and business districts through the establishment of the College Hill Alliance (CHA)
To support our strategy of investing in citizen-centered solutions in three Knight communities by piloting the Code for America model, which deploys technology professionals to develop original solutions that engage citizens in community challenges
To create Macon Public Radio to be housed in the Center for Collaborative Journalism at Mercer University as part of a unique community news partnership between a university, a newspaper and a public broadcaster
Our Macon strategy is two-fold:
1. To build the urban core and create a vibrant community in the three-square-mile area from Mercer University through historic downtown.
2. To connect people through information and technology so they can make informed decisions and act upon those decisions with confidence.
We work to create a sense of place and belonging in College Hill. We enhance news and information exchange through the Center for Collaborative Journalism. We help people tap into the power of the Internet through Connect2Compete.
Knight is committed to leading and working with others to create informed and engaged communities — and Knight is committed to Macon.
To help sustain healthy communities in a democracy, we aim to increase the ability of individuals to engage in change.
