MSTL- Dutchtown South Development and Partnerships VISTA
The main goal of this VISTA position will be to strengthen our organization’s efforts to support our service area residents with access to information related to housing as well as provide residents with tools for better engaging in decisions about public infrastructure and development in their neighborhood. This VISTA will work to facilitate community by supporting our community empowerment infrastructure. We support many community organizations such as the business districts and participatory budgeting processes. We would like to centralize these outreach and engagement of residents through an analysis of the current tools and modes of community communication and to re-establish our “community empowerment” committee and “youth council” with a new approach. Instead of building traditional “block teams” with “captains” we envision an affinity group model as a coalition of smaller committees that can be responsive and flexible, yet keep initiatives aligned to broader neighborhood plans. Neighborhood plans are formal documents adopted by the City of St. Louis for strategic land use and other development related issues. These land use guidelines are created through a community process and should directly related to community concerns.
