This year marks the 10th anniversary of the New Communities Program (NCP), a Chicago-based initiative to support a holistic, integrated approach to rejuvenate challenged communities, bolster those in danger of losing ground, and preserve the diversity of areas in the path of gentrification. This session uses case studies of two of those communities—Pilsen and Chicago Lawn—to explore what did (and didn’t) work and the role of municipal government in supporting comprehensive community development.
