How can we help distressed neighborhoods recover from a generation of economic loss and reposition themselves for success in today's economy? While many have proposed solutions to the problems of neighborhoods suffering from economic disinvestment, John Kromer has actually put them to work successfully as Philadelphia s housing director. Part war story, part how-to manual, and part advocacy for more effective public policy, "Neighborhood Recovery" describes how a blending of public-sector leadership and community initiative can bring success to urban communities. Kromer s framework for neighborhood recovery addresses issues such as. neighborhood strategic planning. home ownership and financing. the role of community-based organizations. public housing. work-readiness and job training for neighborhood residents. housing for homeless people and others with specialized needs. the importance of advocacy in influencing and advancingneighborhood reinvestment policy."Neighborhood Recovery" presents a policy approach that cities can use to improve the physical condition of their neighborhoods and help urban residents compete for good jobs in the metropolitan economy. Kromer s experience in Philadelphia reveals challenges and opportunities that can decisively influence the future of neighborhoods in many other American cities."
