'Innovation Hotel' Collision Works Brings Community Focused Development to Detroit

“It is important for people to understand that the stories they hold close, the stories of their lives, are actually very important. These stories remind us who we are, where we come from, and provide valuable lessons, clues, and roadmaps for how we move forward. So much of the city has left in the last 50 years and our stories and history have left with them.

Welcome to Your New Government – Next American City

Fri, 08/03/2012 - 15:24 -- rprice

Built out of the organizing structure of churches, unions and block associations, CDCs were envisioned as a way for citizens to have direct control over their neighborhoods while leveraging the tools of government and business. Since 1967, the first CDC, now called the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, has constructed or renovated 2,200 housing units and helped bring more than $475 million in investments to central Brooklyn. Meanwhile, the East Los Angeles Community Union formed in 1968 and was also funded through the Kennedy-Javits legislation.
