Living Cully reinterprets the ecodistrict concept as an anti-poverty strategy, as a means to address disparities by concentrating investments at the neighborhood scale. Cully suffers from many disparities: 20 percent of residents live in poverty compared to a regional average of 9.9 percent; 24 percent of residents live within ¼ mile of a park (regional average: 49 percent); only 34 percent of Cully streets have sidewalks.

From January to June 2013, Swift Planning Group worked with the Kenton, Arbor Lodge, and Piedmont Neighborhood Associations, residents and businesses in those neighborhoods, and the broader community to develop a vision for what the future Lombard should look like and how to get there. Lombard Street has long been considered a dividing line between neighborhoods where walking is not only unpleasant, but unsafe. Businesses line much of the street, but they have not always served the needs of surrounding neighborhoods. The Lombard community, however, is made up of passionate people who care about their neighborhoods. They are ready to ...
