Final Report for Neighborhood Study Project.
Louisville Univ., KY. Univ. Coll.; Louisville Univ., KY. Urban Studies Center.
This report gives the background of the Neighborhood Study Project, conducted in Louisville, Kentucky, in the spring of 1968. The city at that time had lost the first round competition for the Model Cities Program, and although the morale of the target neighborhood residents had been damaged, some community leaders still were willing to support a neighborhood improvement project. Even when the Neighborhood Council rejected participation in the second government Model Cities Planning, members were determined to solve their community problems of jobs, housing, and education through active community involvement and existing governmental and private service agencies. The project consisted of a series of related neighborhood workshops for persons in the target poverty communities. The purposes and results of the workshop were: examining the elements necessary to a successful neighborhood organization; examining techniques of integrating neighborhood organizations into the urban regional governmental complex; and preparing and publishing a manual of neighborhood organization designed especially for the Louisville Metropolitan Region.
