What's Working And What Needs Improvement? Results From Neighbors Gathered From Feb. – June 2017

284 responses from your neighbors reveal that the top three qualities that are working currently are: #1 Diversity (23 votes) #2 Trust Between Neighbors (12 votes) #3 Local Business Development (7 votes). The top three concerns in the community are: #1 Housing Affordability (18 votes) #2 Waste Management (13 votes) #3 Lifting NYers out of Poverty (10 votes).

We believe the potential of neighbors working together on small-scale, creative interventions to commonly shared problems, like waste management, is big. We have designed a process that helps neighbors explore the problem of waste, as well as possible (and creative) solutions to the different issues that are uncovered.
