Communities often find themselves reacting to a developers proposal, rather than working to attract development that fits a local vision. MPC is reversing this dynamic through the Corridor Development Initiative, which helps local stakeholders learn to articulate their own clear vision of the development theyd like to see and approach developers with their proposal. This seven-minute video, produced by Metropolitan Planning Council and Free Spirit Media, explains the process for community leaders who may want to try this approach in their neighborhoods. The video features highlights of MPC's work in 2008 with Lawndale, a community on Chicago's Southwest Side.
