Community Development Advocates of Detroit Neighborhood Revitalization Strategic Framework
In 2010, D3 developed a composite analysis of indicators to illustrate the land use category of each Census Block in the city. This typology analysis is based upon current conditions, not solely zoning or land use, and also illustrates the relative strengths and challenges between different blocks. In 2011, D3 served as a technical partner as CDAD and community groups piloted the framework process in Southwest Detroit with Urban Neighborhood Initiatives and on the Eastside with the Lower Eastside Action Plan. Residents in both pilots used the framework to develop plans that are both realistic and visionary.
The Community Development Advocates of Detroit (CDAD) Neighborhood Revitalization Strategic Framework is a community-based process that empowers residents to develop a future vision for their neighborhoods. The process emphasizes resident empowerment by using accurate, relevant, and accessible information.
