TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Residents on the Southside of Tallahassee are developing ideas to rebrand the area.

WTXL ABC's Jada Williams joins was live Wednesday morning with more on how they plan to do that.

The residents have already identified what the community needs the most and now they're ready to see the Southside of town grow.

The group is targetting four areas: economic impact, public safety, beautification and land use.

The ideas they have in store for areas such as the Greater Bond Community include adding more to the neighborhood park, putting in resources that'll help educate and train residents of all ages, and bringing more businesses into the community.

Many of those involved say the community means a lot to them.

Rhett Turnquest, a developer, said: "It's easy to be passionate about this community because we've been here. My DNA is here and it's really easy to bring this communityback to its original exurberance."

THe group will unveil their full list of ideas to the residents on September 13 at the Southside Farmers Market.
