Community Building

Mission: Metro’s neighborhood and community development department exists to create positive change for communities by partnering with local agencies, businesses, families and residents. We view collaboration as a catalyst and tool for the creation of stable and vibrant neighborhoods and communities.

The emphasis of our work in Community Building is on rebuilding the very fabric of community life. We believe that communities are much more than brick and mortar, they are living, vibrant neighborhoods made up of the people that live in them.

• Revitalize and strengthen neighborhoods with focused, targeted resources.
• Partner with organizations to assess, plan, and implement strategies for community development.
