Neighborhood Development

In the pillar of Our Community, Forward Wayne County is focused on Neighborhood Development.  Neighborhood Development has a shared focus on Partner Engagement and Coordination of Efforts.  Within Wayne County, Neighborhood Development focuses on the community-led revitalization of spaces that enhance the lives of our residents.  With a focus on Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD), community residents and organizations can work together to stabilize vulnerable neighborhoods and develop a community-defined definition of development through discovery and mobilization of pre-existing resources within each individual community.
