A story of how on-the-ground visioning with residents and city leaders resulted in two very different strategies
for redevelopment and neighbourhood change. In Montreal, a commitment to community engagement resulted in resident-supported renovation of units and a focus on reconnections to downtown. In Cleveland, Ohio, when facing the dilapidation and vacancies in a neighbourhood hit by economic decline and foreclosures, residents chose demolition as the best option to invest for the future.
