CityWide is a leader in the creation and implementation of comprehensive community development strategies and programs. With a dynamic team of six professional staff who are passionate about community building and neighborhood revitalization, we bring a diverse skill set to every project. As a learning organization that recognizes that neighborhoods are dynamic places, we strive to understand and learn new methods and approaches to community development to bring new tools to our work.
Key Features of the CityWide Approach
- Real Time Information. Through community organizing we seek to better understand the neighborhood and build relationships with people who live, work and play there.
- Strategic Partnerships. Through relationships building we create partnerships to improve the neighborhood. We engage people and groups inside the neighborhood and those outside that can play a significant role in transformative change.
- Leveraged Investments. Through careful analysis we determine what investments have been made in the neighborhood and what is planned in the future. These investments often attract additional resources to the community.
- Sustainability. We begin our work mindful of sustainability and strive to build the capacity of local groups and organizations who are most vested in the neighborhood’s success.
