South Park Studies: Social Infrastructure
Reimagining the Civic Commons is a three-year, national initiative with projects in five U.S. cities that revitalize and connect civic assets. A collaboration of national foundations and a network of local partners, the initiative is working toward four main goals: civic engagement, socioeconomic mixing, environmental sustainability and value creation.
Earlier this year, representatives from Chicago, Detroit, Akron and Philadelphia met in Memphis to discuss the programs challenges, successes, and future. Read “Coming Together in Memphis” for their lessons on creating engaging public spaces.

South Park Studies is a new initiative designed to bring you news and resources on the topics we hear questions about the most — homelessness, daycare and school availability, transportation, and more. Each topic will consist of a multi-week series of article recommendations, volunteer opportunities, and more.
