Principles of the Program

Print

Growing Strong Neighborhoods will require an ongoing effort to achieve lasting and measurable results – perhaps decades, not just a few years. It is a core driver of many current and potential City programs, so every City function is involved, and every City department is involved. Community and citizen participation is key to ensuring the success of these programs.

Our number one measurement of success is improving property values because…

  • Good Income Mix
  • Sustained Business Activity, Growth
  • Lower Crime
  • Good Schools
  • Improved Rents
  • Good City Revenues
  • Low Overhead
  • Investment Likely
  • Stable Neighborhoods
  • Higher Quality of Life
  • Economic Status Declines
  • Fewer Businesses, Increasing Vacancies
  • Higher Crime
  • Declining Schools
  • Lower Rents
  • Declining City Revenue
  • Higher Service Costs
  • Investment Unlikely
  • “Road to Slumhood”
  • Lower Quality of Life

Following are current programs put in place to support this goal:
