At the January 2015 Industry Neighborhood Association meeting, the Studio invited the residents of the Industry neighborhood to identify areas of the neighborhood in which they would like to see improvement. The students then converted these concerns into a series of initiatives broadly grouped into 5 categories.
The Housing initiatives are concerned with improving the appearance of the neighborhood, improving the condition and safety of homes within the neighborhood, and improving the energy efficiency and sustainability of the neighborhood all while encouraging homeownership.
The initiatives within the Housing group are:
- Encouraging Home Ownership
- Home Weatherization and Energy Efficiency
- Homeowner Landscaping and Sustainability
- Low and Moderate Income Housing Maintenance Assistance
- Upkeep of Lots
