Members of President Barack Obama’s cabinet will be in Memphis Friday for a tour to inspect federal investments made here through the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.
• the Harahan Bridge
• the Aerotropolis FedEx facility
• the Broad Avenue business corridor
• the Legends Park West affordable housing development
The three departments have invested more than $130 million in Memphis since Obama established the Partnership for Sustainable Communities in 2009. The program’s goal was to make investments in communities to improve housing, transportation, protect the environment, and build stronger regional economies.
The federal officials will be joined by Memphis Mayor A C. Wharton, U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, and Delta Regional Authority Co-chair Chris Masingill.
