In 2013, former Corpus Christi Mayor Joe Adame invited city transformation.org to help facilitate the relocation of a historic African-American community due to a $1B Port Authority Bridge development. This became a city-wide movement during 2014-2017, working with the Port Authority, Texas Department of Transportation, and the City of Corpus Christi negotiating adequate compensation for families living in the historic Hillcrest Community. A major community development with Braselton Homes was planned for relocated families, until disrupted by Hurricane Harvey.
“Pastor Henry Hopkins of the First Congregational Church had a vision for what Kansas City could become. He preached a series of sermons called City Beautiful. Businessman August R. Meyer was so inspired he developed an interlocking system of parks and boulevards that changed Kansas City’s future.”
