Springfield, Ohio wanted more for its neighborhood south of downtown. The area is full of historic buildings threatened by decline and demolition. In collaboration with CUDA Studio, Urban Fast Forward worked with the community to develop an actionable revitalization plan.

Engaged Neighborhood Plan

Community engagement was central to this project. Our consulting team worked closely with long-time resident stakeholders, some eager and some skeptical. Together we developed a vision for the neighborhood and outlined a set of recommendations ranging from crosswalks to long-term capacity building. The full spectrum of recommendations is geared towards incremental and organic neighborhood revival. Our team continues to work with the city on this project.
