The Promise and Challenge of Neighborhood Democracy

The Promise and Challenge of Neighborhood Democracy: Lessons from the Intersection of Government and Community is a 2009 report written by Matt Leighninger and released by the Deliberative Democracy Consortium, Grassroots Grantmakers, and NeighborWorks America. The report grew out of a meeting that Grassroots Grantmakers and the Deliberative Democracy Consortium organized in Orlando last fall with help from the National League of Cities and NeighborWorks America. The discussion focused on lessons from Portland, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and other cities that have experimented with creative ways to engage citizens in public decision-making and problem solving. The full report can be found at http://www.deliberative-democracy.net/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_view&gid=19&tmpl=component&format=raw&Itemid=93.
