The Pinch District wants your input on what should happen next in the growing area of downtown.

The Bass Pro project and the proposed expansion of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital/ALSAC are just a few of the big developments that have already put the Pinch District on the map.

Now, the City of Memphis and the Shelby County Government invites residents, property owners, and the public to give more input on a vision to further the Pinch District even more.

Two public meetings were held March 31 and June 23 of this year, and now a third meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22 at the Balinese Ballroom, 330 N. Main Street.

According to the Downtown Memphis Commission, a vision for the Pinch District will be presented, and connectivity between the initiative and other projects in the area will be discussed. 

The Pinch District is a historic district located on the north end of downtown Memphis roughly bordered by the Wolf River on the west, Market Street on the south, Danny Thomas Boulevard on the east, and A.W. Willis Avenue on the north.

(he City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development, Memphis and Shelby County Office of Planning Development and the Downtown Memphis Commission are serving as the planning team, in partnership with Looney Ricks Kiss.
