A group has called a citywide community meeting on the future of the Harriet Tubman site.
The city had initially planned to buy the site from the Chattanooga Housing Authority for $1 million. However, Mayor Andy Berke said the city was withdrawing from the project.
The CHA closed the site in East Chattanooga, saying it was too costly to continue its upkeep.
A group called the Coalition of the Affordable Housing Committee set the meeting for the Avondale Recreation Center, 1305 Dodson Ave., on Thursday at 6 p.m.
It was called "in regards to the future vision of the Harriet Tubman site."
Officials said, "We have petitioned different entities - the mayor's office, the City Council, the Chattanooga Housing Authority and the Chamber of Commerce.
"This is your time to express your vision for the site and also inform the different guests the struggles that have taken place since the closing."
