Community Driven Growth: A Roadmap for Dallas Equitable Development

In September of 2018, TREC (The Real Estate Council), Loveland, and other partners began a project called Community Driven Growth with funding from the JPMorgan Chase Pro Neighborhoods Grant Program. The goal was to work in three Dallas neighborhoods considered at risk of gentrification - the Bottom, Forest District and West Dallas - to pilot a model of what resident and community driven growth looks like. Loveland facilitated a large resident surveying project which you can read about in depth on this page; you can also read its affiliated document, the overall report of these efforts (of which Loveland was just one facet) here.

This surveying component was intended to supplement other data being collected by the Community Driven Growth partners regarding community preferences, needs, and concerns.
