Neighborhood Revitalization

 

Municipalities are increasingly in need of new and more effective strategies to establish community-based programs.  These programs must address the need to improve the participation and involvement of community residents, businesses, churches, and other key stakeholders in establishing viable and impactful ways to address community issues and concerns. There is also a national focus on community leadership development and community-based strategies for the development and improvement of neighborhoods.

The success of the Andy Street Multi-Family Improvement District, which was the first of its kind in the United States, and the Neighborhood Ambassador Project, is due in part to training and empowering those closest to the problem.
