a community-driven initiative

Help us revitalize the Drive!

Join us in transforming East Memorial Drive into a thriving and vibrant corridor, where residents, businesses, and visitors come together to create a prosperous future.


Our mission is to plan and promote activities that encourage community and economic development along the East Memorial Drive corridor (285 East to 78 East), fostering a vibrant and inclusive environment that enhances the quality of life for all stakeholders and nurtures a thriving local economy.


Our vision is to transform the East Memorial Drive corridor into a dynamic and flourishing hub that embraces diversity, fosters sustainable growth, and creates a sense of pride, prosperity, and belonging for the entire community.


Through our collaborative efforts and innovative initiatives, EMDRF strives to create a vibrant and inclusive community that fosters economic prosperity, cultural enrichment, and a welcoming environment for all who live, work, and visit the East Memorial Drive corridor.


Beautification Projects

EMDRF has formed a partnership with The Center for Truth and Healing to reestablish "Clean the Block", its' environmental protection program. Starting in May 2024, volunteers will be working on making  improvements and cleaning up several areas along East Memorial Drive that have become dilapidated. Sponsors and volunteers are needed to support our efforts. If you know of an area that needs revitalization, let us know.

Community Events

Since our launch, EMDRF has hosted a couple of community meet and greets to help bring local business owners and residents together, however, we are thrilled to be the host of a new annual event, "DeKalb County's Good Neighbors Day Out on East Memorial Drive" to be held each year in conjunction with National Good Neighbors Day on September 28th. This event aims to unite and connect all of DeKalb County.

EMDRF is working to position itself as a community hub for residents and local business owners to access resources such as entrepreneur education, small grants, and wrap-around support. As part of this initiative, we have recently rehabbed our office space to create a tech lab, started partnering with local agencies, and are seeking sponsors to help contribute to our cause.

EMDRF is a community organization with a commitment to help revitalize East Memorial Drive and make it a safe, sustainable, and thriving place to live, work, and visit. In order to do this, we must all work together. This is why we work closely with members of our local, regional, and state governments to advocate for the residents and businesses in our corridor.
