Project Overview


Most recent benchmark: Artists are implementing engagements in Memphis neighborhoods.

Upcoming benchmark: The new comprehensive plan will be completed in January 2019. 



Memphis 3.0 is a two-year comprehensive planning process designed to identify issues across Memphis, state goals, collect data, assess current and future conditions, create implementation plans, evaluate alternatives, adopt the plan, and initiate implementation. Four key pillars anchor the Memphis 3.0 process: sustainability, livability, connectivity and opportunity.

As part of  Memphis 3.0, Yancy Villa-Calvo, Neili Jones, and Alex Greene are working closely with the planning team and community involvement partners to amplify and diversify voices engaged in neighborhood dialogues that will shape the future of our neighborhoods and our city. This effort is a collaboration between the UrbanArt Commission, City of Memphis’ Office of Comprehensive Planning, BLDG Memphis, and local community involvement partners.

All three Memphis 3.0 artists have been implementing engagements in Memphis neighborhoods since fall 2017. The engagements will continue to be implemented through fall 2018.  For updates on their engagements, please visit:
