Abstract or Description

A number of revitalization efforts have been either undertaken or proposed for Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a small post-industrial city located in Cambria County, approximately 75 miles east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Johnstown's Vision 2025 Governance Committee commissioned the Remaking Cities Institute at Carnegie Mellon University to study the proposed initiatives and develop a commonly held set of priorities for the community. The Institute developed a resilience framework to direct Johnstown's next steps forward by meeting with community leaders, analyzing existing plans and conducting new research. This research has led to greater engagement of both community leaders and ordinary citizens in the remaking of Johnstown as a model of resilience.
