Neighborhood Improvement Strategy

Neighborhood Improvement Strategy is a pilot program aimed at using data about neighborhoods to make communities more vital and raise the quality of life.

Vital neighborhoods provide decent affordable housing, high-performing schools, attainable health care and social services, accessible employment, connective transportation, active retail and commercial areas, safe streets, and sustainable infrastructure. To achieve this in identified neighborhoods, the program has two sets of goals:

Short-term Goals

  • Improve public safety
  • Invest in improvements to the area's physical characteristics
  • Increase community engagement

Long-term Goals

  • Promote economic revitalization
  • Provide supportive services to reduce poverty and create paths to self-sufficiency

Pilot project

City Council approved $2.56 million to pilot the Neighborhood Improvement Strategy program in the Cavile Place/Stop Six area for 2017. Visit the Stop Six page to keep track of the program's progress.
