RCPL Faculty Awarded Grant to Examine Local Community Development and Advocacy
Professors of Regional & City Planning C. Aujean Lee and John Harris were awarded an OU Faculty Investment Program grant entitled, “Outsourcing Community Development and Advocacy?: A Case Study of Neighborhood Alliance of Central Oklahoma.”
This project seeks to understand opportunities and constraints of neighborhood planning conducted entirely through a local nonprofit rather than through a city planning department with a unique case in Oklahoma City. The study will contribute new knowledge to about how neighborhood planning in the public or nonprofit sector may lead to different outcomes for resident empowerment.
