Kashmere Gardens Livable Centers Planning Study

Study Summary and Goals

The Kashmere Gardens Study provides analysis and recommendations for land use and infrastructure investments that create a more walkable, connected community with strong community hubs and great public spaces for current residents. Specifically, the study recommends:

  • Improving housing conditions and options for current residents so that they can continue to live affordably in their neighborhood. This may include developing vacant properties and encouraging the development of workforce housing.
  • Supporting local residents through workforce development and entrepreneurship.
  • Building capacity for neighborhood leaders by investing in the Near Northside Management District and aligning the plans of the city with the goals of the community.
