In this text on successful urban empowerment, former Indianapolis Major Stephen Goldsmith describes how he devolved key decisionmaking from city officials to grassroots leaders and worked closely with neighbourhood-based organizations to effect change. The book shows how a wide array of initiatives, from Goldsmith's work with Indianapolis faith-based organizations to his early successes in competitive contracting for city services, served to empower neighbourhoods. As a way of illustrating Goldsmith's empowerment initiatives, the book also contains an in-depth case study of three Indianapolis neighbourhoods by Ryan Streeter.
