Community of Choice: Rossville Boulevard

“Rossville Boulevard serves as a corridor to the City of Chattanooga from the North Georgia communities of Rossville, Ft. Oglethorpe, Chickamauga and Rome.” -Rossville Boulevard Community Plan, 2004.




Diverse. Family Oriented. Growing.


These words bring into focus the Rossville Boulevard area. The Rossville community is one of the most diverse in the city and encompasses six different communities:

  • Eastlake

  • Clifton Hills

  • Cedar Hills

  • Fort Cheatem

  • Boulevard Park

  • Park City


Not only is it one of the most diverse communities in the city, it's also a main thoroughfare between North Georgia and Chattanooga.

With long-time residents, easy access to the state line, and numerous businesses, it is a wonder why the Rossville Boulevard area is continually under-resourced. This area is prime for increased access to transit, infrastructure upgrades, and aesthetic improvements. Rossville Boulevard could be a thriving economic base south of the city core that leverages residents from both Chattanooga and North Georgia.


So why has Rossville Boulevard been overlooked?


Why so under-resourced?


As city councilwoman, I will ensure that all neighborhoods in District 7 are equitably represented and allocated the necessary resources needed to build stronger communities.
