Middle Neighborhoods: Action Agenda for a National Movement

The Middle Neighborhoods: Action Agenda for a National Movement meeting was held in Baltimore at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond on November 15-16, 2017, with support from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and Healthy Neighborhoods Inc., a Baltimore-based community development organization leading the city’s middle neighborhood stabilization efforts.

Experts from varying disciplines and backgrounds, each familiar with the context of middle neighborhoods in cities across the United States, divided themselves into three working groups to advance discussions in policy, practice, and research. Among the participants were the Mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, Philadelphia City Councilwoman Cherelle Parker, and two members of Congress, Dan Kildee (D-Michigan), and Dwight Evans (D-Pennsylvania).
