Urban communities have long tried to defend their neighborhoods from environmental and social blight. This book examines the diverse ways in which artists, environmental activists, and citizens work to revitalize their urban environments. "Belltown Paradise" investigates grass-roots renovation efforts in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle by exploring the work of activists there, including their creation of the Belltown P-Patch community garden and the conversion of historic cottages into writers' residences and a community center. The volume also features the first in-depth survey of artist Buster Simpson's work in Belltown. "Making Their Own Plans" examines preservation projects in Portland, Chicago, Hamburg, and Barcelona. From the development of 6,000 acres of vacant city land into farms to the transformation of an old hospital into a community center, this book offers fascinating accounts of independent urban activism around the world. "Belltown Paradise and Making Their Own Plans" present inspiring chronicles of how concerned citizens affected community change, making these volumes invaluable for activists and policymakers.
