WENDELL PHILLIPS DOWNTOWN EAST NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN
The Urban Neighborhood Initiative retained the services of Hoxie Collective to create a development strategy with Wendell Phillips Neighborhood Association. During the comprehensive planning and engagement process, the neighborhood residents and stakeholders identified specific strategies to achieve their vision and found common interests with new partners. Wendell Phillips’ priorities are focused on:
Emphasizing history, arts, and culture
Growing a mixed-income neighborhood with affordable quality housing in perpetuity
Effective, consistent, empowering communication
Partnerships with neighbors, businesses, and surrounding neighborhoods.
Increasing financial literacy
This actionable plan paves the way to informed and empowered relationships between new collaborators and the neighborhood by defining the need, the collaborative process, and the desired outcomes. Currently, Hoxie Collective continues a relationship with the neighborhood by supporting an intern to advance the implementation of the priority strategies.
