Description Interest
In the spring of 1995, the Dwight Central Management Team (DCMT) began working with the Neighborhood Partnership network (NPN) and the Yale Urban Design Workshop (YUDW) to develop a Neighborhood Plan for Community Action. After a summer of studying the issues involved in the neighborhoods, the groups organized a 4-day community design workshop which was held at the Timothy Dwight School. During this 4-day charrette over 250 participants, including neighborhood residents, public officials and local community institutions, voiced their concerns and opinions about the neighborhood.

In September of 1996 the Plan was released. Dwight Neighborhood has made impressive progress towards many of the goals articulated in the Plan. Such accomplishments range from the development of the Greater Dwight Development Corporation (GDDC), a community development corporation with the capabilities to fundraise and manage the monies needed to improve the neighborhood, major improvements in safety, economic and social strength, housing as well as community wellness.

The neighborhood has also produced an impressive array of important individual projects, such as the Shaw’s Plaza, which is currently housing a strong community partner Stop & Shop.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Money and the Civic Impulse

One of the most powerful ways to immobilize citizen engagement can be outside money, even when purported to be available for citizen engagement.

The Moment for Community Has Arrived

Building community and belonging is going to be our most powerful strategy for ending the displacement and isolation that plague so many corners of our world.
