How neighborhoods receive new development often reflects how included residents feel in the development process. Whether we’re making way for a high-rise residential tower or converting a vacant lot to a community garden, people need to feel heard. Approaches to promote and harness that listening should be a significant part of any city-maker’s toolkit.
