Study will focus on community: Richard Dagenhart and students conduct study with neighborhood of endangered historic properties

For 15 years, almost two dozen Georgia communities have been evaluated by urban planning professionals looking for ways to stimulate investment and promote sustainability. Harrisburg, a colorful, working-class neighborhood with almost 1,000 buildings, is an important part of Augusta because of its history and proximity to downtown. It is also imperiled by neglect, and in 2007 was placed at the top of Historic Augusta Inc.'s annual list of most endangered historic properties.The planning study, which will run through May, will be conducted by Moore and a team of graduate students led by Georgia Tech professor Richard Dagenhart.
