What's Happening Now

2016 Policy & Advocacy Platform

What makes a city livable?  2015 brought progress in the blight fight, sidewalk funding, and other areas. This year, in addition to transportation, placemaking, and community development programs, we’re focusing on: redevelopment strategies like stabilizing vacant houses for future reuse; expanding incentives and funding for infill redevelopment and affordable housing; and promoting mortgage lending in low and moderate-income neighborhoods.
