On November 30, 2006, LISC/Chicago released a new report and photo presentation highlighting the NCP neighborhoods and the work underway. The pocket-sized booklet includes more than 60 photographs and short articles about the ways NCP works, from Earning and Learning to Planning, Creating and Greening. Read the introduction.
Cities and neighborhoods, like businesses, rise or fall based on investment. The NCP lead agencies in November 2006 selected 14 catalytic projects that are ready for investment—and ready to help improve the local quality of life.
Twenty-eight neighborhood leaders were recognized for their efforts Nov. 30 during the New Communities Program Leadership Assembly at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. Read about these "ordinary" people and their extraordinary commitment to improving neighborhoods.
This 2005 document includes summaries of all 14 Quality-of-Life Plans plus essays on the planning process and cross-cutting issues. It is an oversized document best printed on legal-sized paper (8.5 by 14 inches). Set page setup to legal-size and, if necessary, scale the page or check the shrink-to-fit-page option.
This report describes the New Communities Program and provides brief profiles of the 16 neighborhoods and their lead agencies.
