Enhancing accessibility in Greektown
May 24, 2023
Thanks to the leadership of our sorority community, new sidewalk improvements are planned for Greektown, an area adjacent to campus that is home to many students.
Members of the Panhellenic Association’s (PHA) Accessibility Committee initially discussed repairing and extending sidewalks with the Columbia City Council. Last summer, the Columbia Public Works Department presented preliminary designs for the project.
Given its importance to Mizzou, the university and the City of Columbia have agreed to share total costs. PHA will also contribute $17,000. Pending final approval by the Columbia City Council, work will be completed next summer along Rollins Street, Burnam Avenue, Kentucky Boulevard, Curtis Avenue, Richmond Avenue and Tiger Avenue.
Sorority and fraternity organizations are a significant part of student life. We’re proud to help create a more accessible community.
