community preservation

Community resiliency will be enhanced by increasing community governance, leadership, and empowerment; and by providing the environmental, physical, and mental health benefits of green spaces within the community. Our expectation is that this project will provide the City with a model of community development that decreases rather than increases the risk of gentrification.
