Strategies for Engaging Communities: Case studies from Detroit, Denver and Vermont (slides)
In 2017, Enterprise Community Partners launched Opportunity360, a comprehensive approach to understanding and addressing community challenges by identifying pathways to greater opportunities using cross-sector data, community engagement and measurement tools. In partnership with Radian and the University of Maryland’s National Center for Smart Growth Research & Education, Enterprise Community Partners published a series of case studies highlighting innovative community engagement tools. Join us for a webinar and hear from community organizers who are applying strategies and tools on the ground in Detroit, Denver and in Vermont.
In Detroit, the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategic Framework gives residents the data, tools and opportunities to create shared visions for their neighborhoods and develop actionable plans. In Denver, crowd-sourcing and pop-up demonstrations have helped decision-makers identify critical improvements for walkability and transit access. In Vermont, a cross-sector coalition of 60 partners is working together to make progress on childhood hunger and nutrition, education, obesity and wellness, farm viability and environmental quality.
