Resident-Led Neighborhood Planning Playbook

(coming soon in print + digital)

We envision that every St. Louis neighborhood is a chosen place to live, raise children, and grow old.

Since 2018 we have funded a resident-led neighborhood planning process in the West End and Visitation Park. This mission allowed us to support neighborhood planning in a way that is unique to planning processes, being truly resident led, and on which there are few resources and literature. We wanted to capture our collaborators and partners’ learnings from this process as our offering to other neighborhood leaders, the national planning and community development field, and funders who may be seeking to support neighborhood planning processes in their own ecosystems. This offering will give residents, neighborhood anchor orgs, and other stakeholders guidance for collectively owning the process of creating their communities’ visions for the future.

The playbook is a toolkit that will offer principles, resources, and prompts for implementation to help residents and stakeholders build solidarity about who they are, why they want a plan, and how they will complete it together. The principles or topics will connect to each other, emphasizing how to steward relationships, improve skills, open up to the community, set structures for the work, and then sustain the work when it gets tough. We hope readers will be able to see a neighborhood planning process from start to finish.
