Downtown Phoenix Rising: A Case Study of Two Organizations Building Social Capital for Urban Core Revitalization
Researched and written by Dr. Carol A. Poore, this report examines the way in which social capital, or productive networks, can be used to support downtown renewal. This report examines the way in which Phoenix Community Alliance (PCA) and Downtown Phoenix Partnership (DPP)—two, critical downtown-focused organizations ostensibly founded for civic improvement—used social capital to advance downtown urban development initiatives. This research contributes to the general understanding of how pivotal groups responsible for impacting downtown development and quality of life can become more effective in their roles by examining how they create networks pivotal to advancing urban downtown renewal. Findings illuminate how community development groups can more effectively use networks to inspire downtown improvement. Findings emphasize the need to engage a broader downtown community, including both emerging and established organizations and those who desire to contribute to a diverse and exciting heart or city core.
