Foreword to Community Development Innovation Review, Volume 14, Issue 2, 2019
This issue of the Community Development Innovation Review explores the power of arts and culture to transform the practice of community development. Published in partnership with ArtPlace America and PolicyLink, this issue takes a deep dive into the lessons learned from the Community Development Investments program and offers reflections from industry leaders on the implications for the broader community development field. The diverse range of authors includes artists, community developers, bankers, and researchers, and their collective voices frame a rich conversation on how openness to the creative process can help community development organizations better achieve their mission of expanding opportunity for low-income communities.

Local Public Policy and Middle Neighborhoods
Middle neighborhoods have traditionally been the heart of American cities. They are the neighborhoods that working- and middle-class citizens call home. Every American city, regardless of size, has numerous middle neighborhoods. Despite their ubiquity, the number of middle neighborhoods in urban America is declining. This chapter describes how this trend poses a serious threat to American cities and should be an area of focus for local governments.

Lenders’ property standards and energy efficiency: the vital link for affordable housing`
Energy efficiency is an important attribute of affordable housing. Whether housing is, in fact, affordable for an individual or family depends not only on the nominal rent or mortgage payment but also on expenses such as utility payments, transportation costs, and home maintenance. Even if the nominal rent or mortgage payment appears to be affordable, low efficiency housing can be expensive after accounting for energy expenses. Improving energy efficiency can reduce the total cost of housing, making housing more affordable for the occupant.

The accumulation of foreclosed properties: trajectories of metropolitan REO inventories during the 2007–2008 mortgage crisis
In addition to causing financial and social hardship to families and individuals, high foreclosure rates can have negative effects on neighborhoods, cities, and metropolitan regions. One key concern among policymakers and community developers is the extent to which lender-owned homes, often called real estate owned or REO properties, accumulate in different local housing markets. The neighborhood and community impacts of foreclosure are expected to be worse if foreclosed properties sit vacant for significant periods of time and are not absorbed back into the market in some productive way. The inventory of REO properties in a local housing market or submarket may become not just a symptom of housing market decline but an impediment to recovery. An increasing amount of REO inventory in a local or regional housing market may discourage price stabilization and the return of even moderate levels of home purchase activity and financing.

Partners In Progress Case Study: BRIDGE Housing
BRIDGE Housing Corporation in San Francisco has made remarkable progress building a bridge over the economic and class divide that has long separated the North and South Portrero neighborhoods. It is pursuing a community integration strategy informed by a major innovation, ?trauma-informed community building,? which recognizes that all of Bridge?s work must take into account the psychological battering that long years of poverty and social isolation have taken on Portrero?s public housing residents.
