Power in Place: Building Wealth & Well-Being in Mott Haven-Port Morris

Power in Place: Building Community Wealth and Well-being in Mott Haven-Port Morris is a community asset mapping and planning project that will support our community land trust, the Mott-Haven-Port Morris Community Land Stewards. The project will make the case for community prioritized use of land by (i) creating a GIS (geographic information system) framework to identify opportunities, constraints, and requirements for the creation and use of public space; (ii) developing a community-driven plan, incorporating the myriad of existing plans (from Pratt, CUNY, MIT, Penn Design and Columbia, among others), to create new and strengthen existing public space utilizing the CLT model; (iii) re-engaging the community and stakeholders for input and direction; and (iv) building a communication toolkit that will strengthen advocacy and education about the CLT model.
