Feb 25: Progress in Larimer (talk at CMU)

TransitionPGH presents part of its 2013 Spring Resilience Speaker Series:
Why a Tiny Pittsburgh Neighborhood Might Get $50,000,000

Larimer's residents believe business can once again thrive here. Community gardens sprout where gangs reigned. Resident teams clean and prepare 750 vacant properties piece by piece for new businesses and new families. Federal & local grants could accelerate this. A few have seen this community-led transformation up close in board rooms and in streets, and they're going to share their experience with us.

Pat Clark and his consulting firm Jackson/Clark Partners plan the whole process, guiding Larimer from planning to grant-getting to dirt-digging, pulling politicians, nonprofits, and business with it.
