An Open Letter Regarding I-49 and Allendale “Community Renewal International has worked for twenty-one years to build relationships throughout the city to meet the goal of “One community connected together through caring.” Our sole purpose is in uniting people together through our common capacity to care for one another. It is important to comprehend the nature of our work and the goal we have for our community in order to understand the position of Community Renewal International in relation to the current I-49 discussion and an inner-city corridor through the Allendale neighborhood.” >>Read Mack McCarter’s FULL Letter here.
