Georgian Acres is a neighborhood in Austin, Texas. It has formed a neighborhood association (known as GANA)  that has allowed it to reach out to and include as many people in their neighborhood as possible in all things that are happening within their community. This association's mission is to foster a beautiful, connected, safe, and empowered neighborhood.  Their biggest project to date has been planning a park. The city bought a piece of land for them to have as a public park and they've gotten as many people in the neighborhood as possible to design it. 

Part of the success of this project has been overcoming language barriers by utilizing bi-lingual community members to help translate flyers and in person meetings. 

Positive community impact through shared interest.

 Over the summer the Georgian Acres Neighborhood Association gathered neighbors' ideas through door-to-door outreach and interactive workshops. People within the community are working to make the park.
