What We Do


Lake Ella Tallahassee

Years: 2013-2014

This group made aesthetic improvements to Lake Ella such as improved lighting, enhanced landscaping, and added porch swings. They also helped coordinate events such as Food Truck Thursday to drive more traffic to the Lake Ella merchants and truly make it a “place to be.” Additionally, they advocated for a new entrance to Lake Ella.

A survey conducted by the group aided in the understanding of how residents perceived Lake Ella and its amenities. Based on this research, the team was able to push for enhancements to the area — the most popular of these enhancements was the porch swings that surround the lake.
