Commercial Revitalization –
GRDC works to support local businesses and encourage new businesses to locate within the Grandmont Rosedale community. If you are looking for space to lease or resources to grow your business, contact Larissa Carr at lcarr@grandmontrosedale.com

Neighborhood Beautification –
Each year we organize hundreds of volunteers to pitch in and help keep our neighborhood clean and beautiful. Whether we are planting trees, cleaning up a park or painting over graffiti, we strive to keep our public spaces as beautiful as our houses.

Safety is important to everyone, no matter where they live. GRDC is coordinating efforts to improve public safety across our five neighborhoods. Contact Community Engagement Manager Kitty Yarbrough at kyarbrough@grandmontrosedale.com.

Vacant Property Maintenance and Code Enforcement
Working closely with resident volunteers, we monitor vacant homes in our community with the goal of ensuring that every property is properly maintained. To get involved or to report a vacant house on your block, contact Kitty Yarbrough at kyarbrough@grandmontrosedale.com.
