Course Description

Neighborhood districts present an opportunity to plan and implement improvements within a relatively short timeframe (2-5 years), given their shared market conditions and infrastructure. Rather than articulate a specific set of one-size-fits-all strategies, this course presents a rigorous but adaptable methodology designed to build strengths and address challenges by developing customized approaches that directly respond to the needs and vision of each neighborhood.

The topics covered in the "Methods for Neighborhood Scale Revitalization" course include current state analysis, SWOT analysis (across the domains of design, policy, and finance), identification of residential and commercial key performance indicators, analysis of best (and worst) practices from other cities and neighborhoods, development of an implementation plan, and creation of financing districts to generate and recycle value into the neighborhood.
