Strategies for Postindustrial Success from Gary to Lowell
Torey Hollingsworth and Alison Goebel
This report identifies replicable strategies that have helped smaller legacy cities overcome population loss, neighborhood disinvestment, unemployment, and other problems common in older industrial centers with fewer than 200,000 residents. Practitioners, policy makers, and students will learn how these local leaders found the competitive edge and transformed their cities into thriving, sustainable communities.
Torey Hollingsworth was formerly the manager of research and policy at the Greater Ohio Policy Center, where she managed and carried out research projects, contributed to policy development, and worked with partner organizations statewide.
Alison Goebel is executive director of the Greater Ohio Policy Center.
