Over the past four years, Memphis, Detroit and Akron have adopted investments in public space as a core strategy for equitable community and economic development. Recently the reportCivic Assets for More Equitable Cities was released. The report isa comprehensive look at Reimagining the Civic Commons and our new way of working for cities. The report describes how the emphasis on four outcomes of civic engagement, socioeconomic mixing, environmental sustainability and value creation, paired with a portfolio approach to civic assets yields a shift in how stakeholders lead, govern, manage, and think about civic assets. This ultimately paves the way for more meaningful, potentially lasting community and systems change.
