nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information

From our friends at DataHaven (a great website, by the way):

Do you have opinions about your neighborhood’s convenience, safety or appearance, skills you can contribute, or suggestions for improving the community? Do you want to help your neighborhood become an even better place to live and work?

We’re excited to announce the first-ever New Haven Neighborhood Quality of Life Survey!

This citywide survey is part of a grassroots effort to encourage more residents to participate in their local neighborhood associations and Community Management Teams. Many of these groups have agreed to formally participate in this inaugural year. They have agreed to distribute this email (and paper copies, available upon request) in order to give everyone an opportunity to share their perspective. Developed with the help of successful national examples, the survey represents many months of work and feedback from these associations and other local residents.

DataHaven, a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization that compiles and shares high-quality public information, will ensure accuracy of reporting and maintain the anonymity of all information collected.

Immediately following the collection of surveys, DataHaven will make neighborhood-level results available at its website. Results will also be shared at informal Neighborhood Workshops, to be organized by CMTs, neighborhood groups and at a citywide level. The results may be used by anyone to help their neighborhood develop action plans to address quality of life concerns.

Please help our neighborhoods by distributing this email to your mailing lists and inviting your neighbors to participate at the link below. Any resident, employee, student or visitor to your neighborhood may take the survey.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. We need you to help make this survey and this city the best it can be!

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

What Zombies Can Teach Us About Vibrant Communities

This month, LISC and Cornell University will co-sponsor a conference on comprehensive approaches to turning vacant and “zombie” homes into community assets—and upending the conditions that create them in the first place. Helene Caloir, director of LISC’s $75 million New York State Housing Stabilization Fund, describes how this work is part and parcel of the broad challenges of revitalizing neighborhoods, dismantling racial inequity and sparking economic mobility.

“Café, Cultura, Vida”

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we checked in with Sandra Flores, owner of Azukar Coffee, a small business percolating on the South Side of Phoenix that shows just how important a local gathering place can be to a neighborhood.

Changing Health by Changing the Community

In an op-ed for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and Howard Kern, president and CEO of Sentara Healthcare, describe how their new $100 million will take aim at the social determinants of health in Virginia. Investing in housing, job training and placement, education and transportation, among other requisites of a healthy life, are key to closing the life expectancy gap and creating a strong economy, they argue. Now is the time for corporations, nonprofits and charitable organizations to play leadership roles in making those investments a reality.
