Neighborhoods First: Community Action for Equitable City Planning
As communities of color in Tallahassee are mobilizing to envision new futures for their neighborhoods, the pathways communities can take to engage with the city planning process vary. Assistant Professor Tisha Holmes along with leaders from the Providence Neighborhood Association will discuss the process of building community capacity for engagement , the possibilities and limitations of community partnerships, and the prospects for sustaining community engagement during and after a global pandemic. The community panel will include leaders of the Providence Neighborhood Association Walter McDonald III (President), Rahni Wright (Past President), Leslie Harris (Past President), Monet Moore and Dr. Vanessa Byrd.

The PNA has over 20 years of experience engaging as community leaders in neighborhood planning processes with various governmental and non-governmental partners. These collaborations produced the neighborhood's Rennaissance Plan (2003), the Sustainability Plan (2019) and plan updates through the Neighborhood First Planning Process in 2020 which identify priority action areas and track the progress of short-term projects and long-term community development goals. This webinar will offer insights into community mobilization strategies that can be transferable to other neighborhoods.
