A living resource on how to improve a city’s built environment and bring about equitable revitalization. 

The Center for Community Progress, with the support of Enterprise Community Partners, produced a toolkit to help local practitioners think through strategies and utilize specific tools to carry out those strategies. The toolkit is divided into four elements:

  1. Dealing with problem property owners
  2. Building stronger neighborhoods
  3. Reusing vacant properties
  4. Taking control of and managing problem properties

Within each element category, this resource provides tools and strategies for local leaders. Practitioners interested in any of the four elements listed above will find concrete steps to follow to overcome obstacles in addressing distressed communities.
