Engaging residents in neighborhood redesign



The Right Way to Engage Residents in a Neighborhood Redesign – from The Atlantic Cities:

Denver’s rejuvenated South Lincoln neighborhood, being redeveloped in phases, will be walkable, transit-oriented, equitable, green, and perfectly located in close proximity to downtown jobs and services. It’s a terrific new model-in-the-making of how to revitalize older, distressed public housing sites in an ambitious yet sensitive way. But what really sets the South Lincoln project apart from others is the outstanding predevelopment public engagement and analysis undertaken by the Denver Housing Authority to ensure that the new community will deliver maximum benefits to existing and new residents and neighbors. …

Mithun, the architecture, planning and design firm retained by DHA for the neighborhood’s master planning, stresses that the goal has been to create a “holistically sustainable” vision that links economic development and public health with the built environment.
