Planning Process

The HUD Choice Neighborhoods Initiative seeks to improve neighborhoods through efforts aimed at revitalizing, improving and investing in a specific community. Experience shows that the most productive approach to achieving this goal is through a process of key community meetings where all present can work together in a cooperative environment.

Therefore, the success of our plan-making is tied to a program of community meetings where all participants know the purpose of each meeting and agree that specific outcomes, products and approvals must result.  This makes the process efficient and respects the time committed by community stakeholders.
