Listening To The Community

Hope Community Inc. organized residents to discuss and plan the future of a local park, allowing them to control the change in their neighborhood.

A CDC decided that if it was to successfully redevelop the section of Minneapolis it served, it had to get the people who lived there deeply involved in the process. Through a series of listening sessions and the redesign of a local park, residents who participated have become much more engaged in their community.
