The Remaking of a Neighborhood: For Better or For Worse? Lessons from Englewood

This session will use Englewood as a case study for the “dos” and “don’ts” for others to consider as they work to re-imagine other communities. It will be a frank discussion about what has worked, what hasn’t worked and the implications for the city as a whole.
