First DeCode Day Brigthens Avondale Neighborhood
A Day of Service to Beautify a Block

The City of Chattanooga's Economic & Community Development (ECD) Department launched a new initiative, called DeCode Day, on Oct. 16, 2015, to enhance Chattanooga neighborhoods. The event, which was the first in ECD's new initiative, focused on two blocks in the Avondale Neighborhood. Volunteers from the City of Chattanooga, including code inspectors and representatives of the Chattanooga Police and Fire Departments, worked together with Avondale Neighborhood residents to help preserve homes on Windsor Street. DeCode Day efforts included trimming trees, clearing debris, repairing mailboxes, and applying new coats of paint to trim, railings and columns.DecodeDayTWO

Prior to the inaugural DeCode Day, crews worked on Windsor Street throughout the week to demolish two houses in disrepair, which increases safety and helps return the property to productive use.

DeCode Day is a new ECD initiative that aims to promote safety, beautify neighborhood blocks and strengthen community relationships. In order to improve the quality of life for residents, City employees and volunteers from neighborhoods across Chattanooga join together on established days to make home frontage upgrades such as landscaping, painting, power washing and repairing mailboxes. The idea of DeCode Day came directly from an employee of ECD's codes enforcement division. Looking for a way to encourage property upkeep and ensure safe housing, an inspector suggested a day of service in which codes inspectors would help residents within blighted blocks bring their home up to code. In August of 2015, ECD identified 23 properties along two blocks in Avondale in need of repairs. Even before the work officially started, DeCode Day inspired residents to started making improvements from maintaining yards to fixing front porches.

If you're interested in learning more or hosting a DeCode Day in your neighborhood, contact Affordable Housing Specialist, Jen Bissett, at (423) 643-7325 or jbissett@chattanooga.gov.
