I have designed this course to provide students with an overview of the essential knowledge and skills needed to participate in the planning and implementation of urban neighborhood revitalization efforts. The course will address: (1) basic principles of community development planning, (2) the major challenges in carrying out revitalization initiatives, (3) a step-by-step process of neighborhood revitalization planning, and (4) the key actors and their roles, and (5) funding sources for undertaking revitalization efforts.
