Neighborhood Revitalization

Code: TB-7000.6000

Programs that seek to improve a neighborhood's physical, economic, and social conditions to enhance the overall quality of life and economic opportunities for neighborhood residents. Neighborhood revitalization includes a range of initiatives that target multiple, but complementary, development goals including business development, infrastructure improvements, workforce training, facade improvements, amenity development and property reuse. Critical to this process is the revitalization of commercial areas because it creates jobs for local residents, provides goods and services to the local market (thereby keeping local dollars in the community) and improves the overall image of the neighborhood by signaling that business can succeed there.
