A Community Revitalization

  • David L. Armstrong

Abstract

Cities across the nation face enormous challenges in our urban neighborhoods. Inner-city communities plagued by decades of disinvestment and decline demand innovative, big picture strategies. In Louisville, Kentucky the Park DuValle Neighborhood Revitalization is creating a vibrant, stable mixed-income community with unprecedented homeownership opportunities for people over a range of income levels, in which public housing residents are integrated as neighbors and full citizens into the population of property owners and other renters. The $185 million Park DuValle Neighborhood Revitalization is nothing less than the full-scale, community-driven transformation of a “lost” neighborhood
