Organizer: National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA)
Extremely depressed neighborhoods get a lot of attention, as do places that are gentrifying quickly and displacing residents. But what if your community is neither hot nor cold? What if you fear it may become so? This session will explore strategies for community organizations representing places somewhere in the middle, including support for current homeowners and comprehensive neighborhood place-keeping. It will draw on the “Middle Neighborhoods” research and community of practice.
