"Build Out From the Neighborhoods That Are Strong"

Thursday, December 6, 2012

"My neighborhood is on the fringe of a changing neighborhood. It was built in the 1950's. I am a second generation [family member] from the white owner of the home in which I live. My neighbors have lived in the community an average of 30 years. It seems to me that we need to build out from neighborhoods that are strong. It is the attitude of benign neglect-lack of infrastructure things that create community. We need a vision that commits to a generation of building on strength."
