I'm a part of a student team creating an economic development plan for a historically black neighborhood that has fallen into serious decline since desegregation. It's the Ville neighborhood in St. Louis. We'd like to include/leverage the historical significance of the neighborhood into any economic development plans we make.
What I'm looking for are some precedents where this worked/is being attempted. I've come across two examples so far: the Jazz District in KC, MO and Bronzeville in Chicago, IL.
Can anyone offer any other examples/advice?
