Transcript of Civic engagement impact
Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts awarded in 2011 to the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation to engage local residents, cultural leaders, artists, and regional arts leaders to collaborate in the development of an art and design plan for The Village at Market Creek.
CIVIC ENGAGEMENTUnder the banner of Resident Ownership of Neighborhood Change, the people who live and work in the community create the vision, lead the implementation, and own the change in their community.The Village resident engagement work began in 1997 with an Outreach Team that was formed to survey other residents about what businesses and services they wanted in their neighborhood. Outreach and organzing have been key drivers of our work with focus in the areas of arts and culture and land planning.

Civic engagement drives the work in The Village at Market Creek. Teams of
community residents unite across neighborhoods, cultures, and generations to strengthen joint action
and expand their ability to break down barriers, engage in the creative exchange of ideas, and get
things done. Diverse people working across unlikely relationships are the foundation of long-term
sustainability of community change.
The Village at Market Creek is primed to grow into one of San Diegos most lively, multi-cultural arts destinations.
