Community Involvement

Plusurbia will be coordinating with the Historic Hampton House and the Brownsville Civic Neighborhood Association throughout the Brownsville Historic Survey.  Together we will conduct “History Harvests” to gather memories of the neighborhood, provide project updates, and request continuous feedback to make sure we are getting the story right.
