Community Based Development

“A community lives in its people, in its surroundings, in its history.”

Growth is an essential part of city life. Yetta Kurland believes development plans that emanate from the community should be nurtured and advanced. But development cannot be something that displaces community members, changes the look and feel of a historic district, diminishes public resources or harms small business.  It should be something that enriches a community and provides resources like schools, affordable housing, hospitals, public spaces and parks.

Yetta has great respect for the heritage of our Lower West Side, and has been working alongside her neighbors to ensure that this legacy is passed on to future generations.  The dynamism of our neighborhoods depends on preserving what makes us strong.
