A Twenty-First Century Approach to Community Change

Abstract: Each Good Neighborhoods community is unique. This chapter introduces each of the six neighborhoods in the order in which Skillman launched the community planning process: Southwest Detroit, Chadsey Condon, Brightmoor, Osborn, Cody Rouge, and Northend Central. After a short description of each neighborhood and its early history, basic facts that describe population demographics, economic indicators, housing and crime are presented. A summary of community assets based on profiles generated by the UMSSW/TAC and others offers a glimpse of each neighborhood and the strengths it brings to the Good Neighborhoods process. Child poverty in all communities is about double the 2010 national average of 22 percent, but there is variation in racial composition, educational attainment, employment, vacancies, crime, and home ownership. Some communities can trace their histories to early villages. Some have strong local institutions. However, they all could benefit from planning and focused investment.
