Cultivate Community Program
Change starts now.
Improving neighborhoods with a series of quick, small, low-cost projects
Typical comprehensive planning efforts are expensive, time-consuming, and often include pages of implementation recommendations that never happen. They are often the product of wishful thinking, out of touch with citizens' needs and not based on fiscal realities.
Our Cultivate Community process emphasizes low-risk, resource-conscious projects that, when strung together, can have an immediate impact on a neighborhood or a downtown.
We'll help you assemble a diverse team of community leaders, identify high-impact opportunities, and quickly get to work on projects that bring real value to the neighborhood. Then, we'll work with you to set up a flexible program to make the projects permanent and the collaborations sustainable.
Whether you want to begin stacking multiple projects together over the course of a year, or pilot the program with one project over three months, you'll be well on your way to making immediate and tangible progress that your community owns—with just the resources you have on hand.
