Download NCP quality-of-life plans here
Ten new quality-of-life plans were officially released by New Communities Program neighborhoods in May, 2005, culminating 18 months of planning that involved more than 3,500 people citywide. Three additional plans were completed in 2006 and 2007.
The plans were developed through comprehensive planning processes in each of the neighborhoods. Though the plans have certain common elements -- incuding a vision statement and lists of strategies and projects -- each is a unique reflection of the neighborhood and people who created it.
Each of the plans is available in Adobe PDF format below. These are large downloads (about 5 MB each), so they may take a while on slower connections. Shorter summaries are available for the 2005 plans only.
The Washington Park neighborhood released its plan in 2004. Download here. A new plan is being created by the community in 2008.
