Legacy Cities Community of Practice (2023–2024)
The Legacy Cities Community of Practice is a groundbreaking 18-month program that brings together interdisciplinary teams from four selected cities. These teams will focus on a land-use issue like housing, transportation connections, or placemaking to gain a deeper understanding of local issues and implement solutions through place-based projects in disinvested neighborhoods. Through a combination of virtual workshops and three in-person convenings, the Community of Practice will include leaders from community-based organizations and local city governments who will explore topics including equity, greening, network building, data, and metrics.
Each City Team is expected to commit to at least five hours a month for topical sessions led by expert faculty, team check-ins, and presentations to the full cohort, plus time to spend independently preparing and implementing each project. City Team members will also join a growing national network of legacy city community and government leaders working to create an equitable revitalization. Teams will also have the opportunity to hire a part-time local project coordinator to provide additional assistance with project development.
