This is an historic plan of Baltimore with Jonestown highlighted in red.
Welcome! Assessing revitalization is more than just looking at the physical area that is being improved it is a dynamic view of all of the aspects that make a community and its citizens prosper and flourish. As you navigate this website, my thoughts and notes are located in the blog sections. There is a paragraph about each theme located in the Livability themes section of my blog. I hope you enjoy the Journey!
Revitalizing and building a community without the destruction of the existing local culture.
After speaking with my team, we talked about a lot of these issues and the point that stuck with me is
fighting the thought process that new is inherently better or more valuable. In order to build a
sustainable community we need a mix of existing community members and new with an emphasis on
making the neighborhood feel like a community with a cohesive feel. Finding places to integrate
commercial opportunities that will keep people in the area longer is also a significant step that needs to
be taken overall and in the case of Jonestown.
