Initiatives

Many legacy cities have developed policies, programs, and initiatives that are—or should be—national models for inclusive and sustainable revitalization. While this list is far from exhaustive, the initiatives profiled here reflect some of the best efforts local communities are using to bring about change with limited resources. None are silver bullets, but each contribute to the systems change required to achieve meaningful impact.
