Despite the increased market demand from Millenials and others to live in cities, many U.S. cities face the challenges of holding their populations and keeping neighborhoods from falling into decline. These cities include Detroit, Cleveland, and Baltimore and many others where a central public policy issue is strengthening neighborhoods to hold and grow a population base while improving the overall local economy. These cities have a long history of working to improve their most distressed neighborhoods—with the federal government an intermittent partner in this strategy.

Middle neighborhoods are a category of neighborhoods in US cities that are neither clearly healthy and thriving, nor overtly distressed.
Since the book’s release in November 2016, a series of events supported by The American Assembly have been held across the country as city leaders and neighborhood activists seek solutions.
Middle neighborhoods play a critical role in safeguarding the livelihood & stability of families – join our national dialogue to stabilize these communities.
