Abstract or Description

Johnstown, Pennsylvania is a community on the cusp of a transformation. At the request of the Community Foundation of the Alleghenies, the Remaking Cities Institute conducted a review of previously commissioned plans and proposed a model and process for Johnstown to remake itself. The resulting framework will enable Johnstown's civic leaders to engage citizens in the process of remaking Johnstown as a model of resilience. Johnstown's resilience framework and process can be used by other post-industrial cities as they work to reinvent themselves.
