The City of Memphis is embarking on an exciting journey involving the community. This plan is called Memphis 3.0.
“The backbone of Memphis 3.0 is wide-ranging input from the best experts on Memphis – Memphians,” said Mayor Jim Strickland, who initiated the launch of Memphis 3.0 last year. “It’s crucial that citizens continue to tell us what they want and help guide the priorities of Memphis 3.0.”
