The Neighborhood Playbook

A field guide for community members and developers that facilitates the activation of spaces with the goal of influencing physical and economic growth in neighborhoods. Our hope is that The Playbook will create more neighborhood amenities where people want to spend time, interact socially, create memorable experiences, and connect with the built and natural environment. It will allow entrepreneurial developers to explore new markets with lower risk en route to developing authentic, lasting investments. Together, developers and everyone else will be able to increase the value of their neighborhoods by making them healthier, more fun places to live.

The SCI is based on a theory presented by McMillan and Chavis (1986) that a sense of community is a perception with an affective component. The theory identifies four elements of a sense of community: membership, influence, meeting needs, and a shared emotional connection.
