Community control is a development strategy used by residents and nonprofit organizations to retain and grow community wealth, increase resilience, preserve community space and culture, build local power, and uplift the critical symbiotic relationship between government and community-based organizations. Join Hester Street as we explore ways to build community control through inclusive and meaningful engagement and participation. Discover strategies and methods for integrating community engagement into design and planning processes and understand why engagement leads to better outcomes and a more equitable, sustainable, and just built environment.
