TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Thursday night, we told you about a development project that's been put on hold on the city's Southside.

Saturday, the city will hold a community meeting and breakfast to talk about improving infrastructure in the area.

WTXL was talking about at least 10 projects that are either already underway or in the works. And for City Commissioner Curtis Richardson who lives in the Southside, it's much-needed development.

The projects include continued work on FAMU Way which is in the second of three phases.

Utility work is also planned for the bond community with construction planned to begin next year.

Sidewalks will be added on Putnam Drive, Polk Drive and Palmetto street. Commissioner Richardson said this is just the start for the neighborhood he calls home.

"We've got more projects planned that will be paid for with the sales tax increase that will start in a few years, but we just wanted the community to know that the south side of Tallahassee is receiving investment from the City of Tallahassee and that we are making some much-needed improvements," said Richardson.

The projects will also benefit those who live in Liberty Park, Lake Bradford Road and Iamonia Street, to name a few.

The meeting will be held at the Walker-Ford Community Center tomorrow at 9 a.m.
