The Legacy Cities Partnership
The Legacy Cities Partnership aims to strengthen capacities for policy change and governance reform, share lessons in urban stabilization and regeneration, and connect the array of federal, regional, state, and local initiatives in this area. The Partnership was initiated jointly by The American Assembly, the Center for Community Progress, and The J. Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City following the 110th American Assembly on Legacy Cities organized in Detroit in 2011. Visit the website and join the conversation on the Legacy Cities blog, on Facebook and Twitter.
An effort to rethink strategies for sustainability, livability, and growth in cities facing long-term population loss, industrial decline, and other economic challenges.
The Action Agenda for Historic Preservation in Legacy Cities is a nine-point strategy that shapes a new approach to preservation, adapts existing tools and policies used by preservationists, and promotes place-based collaboration, especially in legacy cities like Newark, Detroit, and Cleveland.

The Assembly cosponsored the 2013 Bruner Loeb Forum under the theme "Legacy City Design," as part of the Legacy Cities Design Initiative, a joint project of The American Assembly and J Max Bond Center.
