Neighborhood Revitalization

Thriving neighborhoods, with a range of housing options and vibrant small business districts with new jobs, mean that residents benefit from improved equity in their homes and have improved choices about their future. The Port works to revive blighted, vacant, and underperforming real estate that stresses communities, devalues real estate, and detracts from quality of life. We collaborate with community stakeholders, customizing our approach to address each neighborhoods’ priorities, challenges, and opportunities.
