The uneven development in historic Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati is resulting in the rapid gentrification of the neighborhood and the displacement of the city’s most vulnerable urban poor. Without the support or participation of the long-time residents, current development practices are perpetuating the cycle of moving wealth and poverty around the city rather than creating sustainable, mixed-income neighborhoods. Resident empowerment and participation in the development process is critical to breaking this cycle. Rather than building housing for the low-income residents of Over-the-Rhine, this project establishes a framework to empower and build resident capacity. This project allows people to gather to determine their own needs, learn and access resources, and build their own solutions to take control of the development of their neighborhood.
