Part of the Environment, Development, and Public Policy: Cities and Development book series (EDPC)


The case studies conducted by the National Commission on Neighborhoods1 provide concrete illustrations of how residents can act together to improve their neighborhoods. A consistent theme throughout these cases was the importance of voluntary activities, which included:
  • The numerous hours contributed by community leaders and residents

  • Membership dues, donations, and other fundraising efforts

  • Contributions of staff or facilities by local church groups or private welfare agencies
