In December, our community came together for a season of giving as we closed out the year. Generous contributions from our friends at Amazon included $30,000 worth of toys and clothes. They also brought along some special friends to lend a helping hand in distributing these gifts to the College Park community. From 'Shop with a Cop' to Councilman Carn's Community Christmas, the city of College Park was filled with the joy of holiday gifts.

The City of College Park proudly announces the launch of a series of public meetings about the Price Barbershop historical site. Price Barber shop is a well-known historical structure nestled in the heart of 6 Six West community, Price Barber Shop stands tall as a historical landmark, brimming with tales of resilience, culture, and shared experiences. It was proudly founded in the 1950’s and served the community of 6 Six West in many different capacities. In one capacity, a barber shop and in another capacity, a home to a cab service that served African Americans in the 6 Six West area. Sadly, however, it recently closed its doors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of College Park recognizes the significance of Price Barber Shop and what it means to the African American community. The goal of these upcoming public meetings is to determine the best ways to preserve this rich cultural heritage while also addressing some of the ideal needs and vision for the neighborhood and the development of 6 Six West.
