Park Alliance Michael Associate Univ. Park Bloom, PhD. Director Alliance Ellen Deitrick Coordinator / Univ. Park Office Manager Alliance City History and Background Phone The University of Akron is located in the City of Akron, Ohio. Akron was founded in 1827 by Irish immigrants who relocated to the area to work on the construction of the nearby Erie Canal. Akron became the county seat for Summit County shortly after its founding. After the construction of the canal was completed, Akron became a key shipping port on freight traveling from Cleveland. During the mid-1800s the first railroads were built connecting Akron to Ohio s other large cities and establishing the city as an industrial center for the Midwestern United States. In the latter part of the 19 th century, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was founded in Akron, further cementing the city as a focal point for manufacturing and industry. By the beginning of the last century, Akron s population had risen to well over 100,000 residents. Like many Midwestern rust belt cities, Akron s industrial base and population continued to grow until the 1960s. The city has struggled with the transformation from a manufacturing based economy to an economy dominated by global markets and the information technology sector (Ohio History Central 2005). Akron is the fifth largest city in the State of Ohio. The city is 62 square miles in area and it is located approximately 40 miles south of Cleveland, Ohio (City of Akron 2005). Akron s population in 2000 was 217,074. This represents a 2.7 percent decline in the number of the city s residents since the 1990 census. According to 2004 estimates, Akron s population has further declined to approximately 212,000 persons. Sixty-seven percent of the city s residents are White, 29 percent are Black, and 1.5 percent of Akron s population is of Asian descent. Slightly more than one percent of Akron s citizens are of Hispanic ancestry. The city s median household income of $31,835 is 26 percent less than the national average. Fourteen percent of Akron s families live at of below the poverty line. The median value of a single family home in Akron is only $76,500 (U.S. Census Bureau 2005). As of June 2005 Akron s unemployment rate was 6.9 percent. 1

5 This reflects a substantially higher rate of unemployment that both the U.S. and State of Ohio unemployment averages (Unites States Bureau of Labor Statistics 2005). University History and Background The University of Akron or UA was founded as Buchtel College in 1870 by the Ohio Universalist Church. The University was funded by a wealthy industrialist, John R. Buchtel. The college was created to provide higher education and related learning services to the citizens of Akron and the surrounding areas. By 1907, Buchtel College s emphasis on local rather than religious studies led it to become a private non-sectarian college. Due to financial difficulties, Buchtel College was gifted to the City of Akron in For the next 50 years, UA was operated and largely funded by the city. Eventually, the University of Akron became a part of the Ohio state university system (University of Akron 2005). As the University has expanded and grown, it has become the leading industrial research institution in Northern Ohio. UA s main campus is located on a 218 acre, 81 building site in the University Park Neighborhood. University Park is comprised of a 40-block area from Wolf Ledges Parkway and Broadway Street on the west to Arlington Road on the east, and from West Market and Forge Streets on the north to Wheeler, Power and Exchange Streets on the south. The neighborhood is located directly east of downtown Akron (University Park Alliance 2005), and the area is the center of education, medical services, and the arts within the Akron metropolitan region. Throughout its life, the UA has successfully coexisted with the surrounding community. Although the University Park area has experienced somewhat of a decline in the past 20 years, the neighborhood has not encountered the serious crime and severe blight that many other urban university neighborhoods have been forced to endure. Still, the neighborhood does have some problems, such as the dearth of quality housing and retail options in the area. Moreover, the residential sector is dominated by absentee landlords that fail to maintain their properties. Additionally, University Park s homeownership rate is only 20 percent compared to 60 percent in the rest of Akron (Kadleck 2002). The University of Akron currently has 24,129 undergraduate and graduate students. The student population is 79 percent White, 14 percent Black, and 2 percent Asian. UA offers more than 200 undergraduate majors and areas of study, nearly 100 master's degree options, 17 doctoral programs, and four degree options in the law school. Nearly 75 percent of the University s faculty members have Ph.D. degrees. UA also has 32 research centers and institutes that are focused on a wide array of specialties and areas of study (University of Akron 2005). From a national perspective, UA is ranked as a fourth-tier university, but the University has a more prominent position in the State of Ohio (U.S. News and World Report 2005). UA s current endowment is valued at $116 million, and its 2004 total operating budget was approximately $310 million. UA is led by its president, Luis Proenza, and an 11-member state appointed Board of Trustees (University of Akron 2005). 2

6 Figure A1.1: University Park Map Source: University Park Alliance 2004 History of the University Park Alliance The University Park Alliance (UPA) was formed in 2000 as a partnership created by the University of Akron, the City of Akron, Summa Health Systems and the University Park Development Corporation. As the lead partner in the UPA, UA viewed the redevelopment of the University Park area as essential to the successful execution of its $200 million campus wide reinvestment plan. The University appointed one of its internal vice presidents, Bill Courson, to head the UPA. The University Park district covers nearly 715 acres and has a total population of about 6,300. Half of the neighborhood s residents are students who are enrolled at UA. University Park includes the Leggett Community, the Perkins Community, the student residential core, and the East Market and East Exchange commercial districts. The UPA was formed in accordance with the following principles: To create and sustain partnerships that implement the community-wide vision for University Park; To promote, enhance and institutionalize student service-learning, faculty applied research and volunteer projects in University Park through The University of Akron, and To develop the capacity for neighborhood groups, community organizations and grassroots leadership in University Park. UPA s founding partners agreed that improving the University Park area was not only in their collective best interests, but it also was the socially responsible thing to do for the city and its citizens (University Park Alliance 2005). UPA s initial funding was provided by the University of Akron and a $200,000 grant from the Knight Foundation. This foundation had been formed by the Knight Newspaper 3

7 family to fund community development, charities, and community service projects. UPA s start up capital was utilized to develop the University Park Revitalization Plan, whose planning committee was comprised of representatives from UPA s four partners, neighborhood business leaders and community members. The planning committee determined that the plan s top priorities should be to improve the neighborhoods within the University Park District and to continue building the institutional and community partnerships needed to undertake this complex series of implementation activities. The plan was produced in coordination with Good, Clancy & Associates, a Boston based planning and economic development consulting firm. The plan included a comprehensive assessment of community development issues associated with housing, cleanliness, streetscape, safety, and services within the University Park area. Additionally, the plan also addressed the following economic development approaches: A unified, broad based approach to land assemblage; Collaboration with private commercial and residential developers; Retail anchor based development; Housing based development, and An analysis of available development incentives. UPA concluded that the University Park area had the demographics and demand characteristics to support an additional 250,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space and up to 1,000 new units of housing (University Park Alliance 2005). In a follow up to their earlier contribution, the Knight Foundation provided an additional $2.5 million in financial support to the organization in After the completion of the University Park Revitalization Plan in late 2002, the UPA partners hired Ken Stapleton, former vice president of the Cleveland Downtown Partnership, to be UPA s director. Mr. Stapleton, along with one other staff person and UPA partner employee support, proceeded to implement the revitalization plan once he formerly assumed the director s position in February In addition, in November of 2003, three new partners joined the UPA, i.e., the Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority, Akron Public Schools, and the Greater Akron Chamber. By the end of 2003, UPA s total financial commitment from its partners was as nearly $9,000,000 (University Park Alliance 2005). The University Park Alliance Today The stated mission of the University Park Alliance is to revitalize University Park as a great place to live, study, work, shop and play through engaging the community and catalyzing real estate investment. The UPA s primary economic development goals are as follows: To facilitate private real estate and business investment, including homeownership; To provide an exciting and diverse urban living choice that is pedestrian-oriented, safe and sustainable, and To enhance local streets, parks, sidewalks, public art and real & perceived safety. 4

8 As a three-person operation, UPA relies greatly on support from UA, the City of Akron, and its community development partners. The UPA s director is supported only by an assistant director and an office coordinator. UPA operates directly out of the University of Akron President s Office, and its offices are located on UA s main campus. UPA s board of trustees provides oversight and organizational guidance to its staff. A considerable amount of operational assistance is provided by University of Akron faculty and administrative staff. UPA holds regular meetings with community leaders and neighborhood groups to keep them apprised and informed of their development efforts, and UPA has created an Outreach Task Force to continually engage and involve the community in the redevelopment efforts in University Park. The Outreach Task Force meets monthly (University Park Alliance 2005). The University Park Alliance s Programs and the University of Akron s Financial Commitment The University Park Alliance s community development programs and efforts can be grouped in the following areas: Economic development, Housing, Neighborhood revitalization and Education. UPA s economic redevelopment efforts have been focused on a large project, Spicer Village, and a smaller project, Beacon s Farmer s Market. Spicer Village is still in the planning stages, but the plan calls for the construction of 120 town home units and 50,000 square feet of retail space in the heart of the University District. UPA is working to gain full site control of the proposed project. One of its members, the University Park Development Corporation, will be the lead developer. Beacon s Farmer s Market opened earlier this year as the only farmer s market in the downtown Akron area. Additionally, UPA has partnered with the local business association to provide entrepreneurial assistance to local retailers and small business operators (University Park Alliance 2005). UPA has also partnered with Habitat for Humanity to create an ongoing housing rehabilitation program to provide renovation assistance to low income residents in the University Park district. In late 2004, UPA received a $400,000 Community Outreach Partnerships Centers Program (COPC) grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In addition to its own funds, UPA is leveraging the COPC grant to develop a community housing program that connects University Park residents with housing assistance providers. Also, UPA is in the process of developing a down payment assistance program for low-to-moderate income employees of the University to purchase homes in the area (University Park Alliance 2005). With respect to neighborhood revitalization and education, UPA s programs are still in their infancy. Both programs involve joining existing community groups with UA faculty and staff in order to increase the capacity and reach of local organizations. The neighborhood revitalization initiatives are focused on working with campus-community 5

9 groups to beautify public parks, to develop a pilot neighborhood arts festival, and to train neighborhood leaders in communication, grant writing, and advocacy (University Park Alliance 2005). From a financial standpoint, the University of Akron has made the largest contribution to the University Park Alliance. UA has funded its financial commitment to the UPA with money from its general operating budget, but UA has not disclosed its future or long-term financial pledge to the UPA. The University has chosen to be a catalyst for economic development rather than engaging in direct, hands-on development activity. Its partnership with the City of Akron is the most significant to revitalization of University Park (University Park Alliance 2005). Table A1.1: UPA Member Financial Commitment as of 2003 University of Akron $ 7,300,000 City of Akron $ 1,400,000 Summa Health Systems $ 155,000 Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority $ 50,000 University Park Dev. Corp. None Akron Public School System None Greater Akron Chamber None Total $ 8,905,000 Source: University Park Alliance 2005 Conceptual and Strategic Models of the Community University Partnership The University of Akron has had a history of being engaged and involved with the surrounding University Park neighborhood. Prior to its involvement in UPA, UA had established community service and education programs that sought to integrate faculty and students with their University Park neighbors, but the significance of UA s financial and human investment in the area remained relatively small. During the past five years, the University s partnership with the community has evolved into a social venture partnership that is broader in scope and more comprehensive than before (Hendrickson 2001). UA has also employed a long-term approach to its community development efforts that is more inclusive of University Park s stakeholders. Conclusion The University of Akron s University Park Alliance is the primary economic development vehicle for the University Park district. UPA s commitment to embracing the community is manifested in its neighborhood revitalization plan for the area. UPA has successfully leveraged funding from the University, the Knight Foundation, and the City of Akron to attract private capital investment to the University Park area. While the scale of UPA s activities may pale in comparison to other community-university economic development ventures, but they have a significant impact in a city as small as Akron. 6

11 University of Cincinnati School of Planning UC/Community Interactions and Collaborations Peer Institutional Study Appendix 2: Case Study Boston University The City of Boston Boston, Massachusetts was founded on September 17, 1630, by Puritan colonists from England and is one of America s oldest cities and was chartered in During the mid-1800s, the city's industrial manufacturing superseded international trade in economic importance, and Boston remained one of the nation's largest manufacturing centers through the early 1900s. It was notable for its garment production, leather goods, and machinery. Despite the rust belt decline of the 1960 s, Boston grew for the first time in 30 years during the 1970s thanks to the growth in the mutual fund and health care industries. Today, approximately 590,000 people call Boston home. In 2002, nearly 660,000 jobs existed, primarily in health care, education, finance and services. According to the US Census 2000, of the total population of the city, roughly 48 percent are male and 51 percent are female, while 54 percent are white and 25 percent are African-American. Currently, in the heart of the city, some minority populations are declining while others are growing. With the exception of Roslindale, the black population there is declining. Boston University Founded in Vermont in 1839, Boston University (BU) emerged as a Methodist theological school. The school relocated to Boston in 1867 and was chartered in It was one of the first institutions to accept African-American and international students. The University operates on two urban campuses: the main campus (Charles River Campus) on the Charles River in Boston's Back Bay, and the Boston Medical Center (Medical Campus) in Boston's South End neighborhood. BU totals 15 schools and colleges. Professional degrees are offered at the School of Law, the School of Medicine, the Goldman School of Dental Medicine, and the School of Management. Graduate degree programs are offered in education, engineering, and the arts and sciences. The University operates internship programs in cities around the world, including studyabroad opportunities in Europe, Israel, Central and South America, and Africa. The Center for Computational Science is home to the SGI/Cray Origin2000, a parallel supercomputer. Total enrollment is about 30,000, with approximately 3,000 faculty and staff. BU is the fourth largest private university in the nation and the city's second largest employer. The Times Higher Education Supplement, in its list of the top 200 international universities, recently ranked Boston University the 21st best university in the United States and the 54th best university in the world. 8

Brighton Main Street; 3. Allston/Brighton Youth Hockey; 4. Boston Police Advisory Committee, and 5. Commonwealth Tenants Association/Commonwealth Housing Development Initiatives. Allston/Brighton Healthy Boston Boston University has been involved in this initiative since the 1990s. The Allston/Brighton Healthy Boston Coalition aims to improve the well-being of Boston s residents and communities by integrating public and private resources to strengthen families and neighborhoods. The Allston-Brighton Healthy Boston Coalition is a collaboration of more than 700 residents, educators, service providers, religious groups, students, and business people working to proactively and continuously improve the health, safety, and cohesiveness of Allston-Brighton. The coalition serves as a vehicle for people who live and work in Allston-Brighton to participate in neighborhood decision-making, to identify shared concerns, and to mobilize internal and external resources to address those concerns. The Allston-Brighton Healthy Boston Coalition sponsors Get Out the Vote rallies and on-going voter registration and education drives 9

13 throughout the year and particularly approaching primary and general election time. In addition, the coalition sponsors political debates among candidates campaigning for the following offices: Mayor of the City of Boston; City Councilor; State Representative. There are many after-school resources available throughout the Allston-Brighton community. Schools, community centers, churches, and synagogues offer programming available to children during the out-of-school time hours. Brighton Main Streets Another Boston University collaboration is the Brighton Main Streets Organization. It focuses on building consensus and cooperation among business district stakeholders, promoting the image and promise of the district to shoppers, businesses, visitors, and investors, unifying and improving the physical design, and creating economic restructuring to respond to changing markets. To date, Brighton Main Streets has provided services associated with storefront renovations and other design projects, provided technical assistance to businesses, published newsletters promoting local businesses, and taken steps toward nominating Brighton Center for the National Register of Historic Places. The Brighton Main Streets Board believes that a healthy neighborhood deserves a strong neighborhood center. The Board, staff, business owners, community volunteers and interns work to create an attractive commercial area that houses a good business mix and features a welcoming streetscape and attractive architecture. The program seeks to foster collaboration among businesses and civic groups in the Main Street effort, contributing to a cooperative community spirit. To achieve its broad goals, Brighton Main Streets has developed seven specific service programs and has organized three committees to direct these programs: Design Committee, Economic Restructuring Committee and Promotions Committee. To date, Brighton Main Streets has accomplished the following: Completed 7 storefront renovations and is working on 5 additional renovations; Facilitated technical assistance to existing businesses by connecting local businesses with the services provided by the City of Boston s Office of Business Development; Orchestrated window decorating contests; Organized holiday caroling leading up to Christmas; Held a dinner fundraiser, Millennium Gala 2000; Published The Brighton Beat and The Merchant Spotlight to promote Brighton businesses, and Hired Tremont Preservation Services to undertake necessary research and complete the nominating process for Brighton Center to attain National Register Status. Allston/Brighton Youth Hockey Each year BU makes ice time available to the Allston/Brighton Youth Hockey Program. 10

14 Boston Police Advisory Committee The University s Director of Community Affairs serves as a member of the Boston Police Department District 14 Advisory Board that meets to discuss police related matters impacting the Allston/Brighton neighborhoods. Commonwealth Tenants Association/Commonwealth Housing Development Initiatives The Commonwealth Tenants Association/Commonwealth Housing Development Initiatives is another activity of Boston University. Primarily, BU volunteers provide services for tutoring children, and coordinating after school activities at BU s Recreation Center. The Commonwealth is located at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Washington Street in Brighton, an active business district, with many stores and services, located within walking distance, including a supermarket and bank. Summary Boston University is active in five community programs, all of which involve University student and staff volunteer services. However, most of the programs are more driven toward serving specific populations vs. the construction of buildings within the community. It seems that real estate around BU s campus retains a higher value when compared to the real estate surrounding the University of Cincinnati s campus.

Commonwealth Tenants Association/Commonwealth Housing Development Initiatives Boston College maintains a significant presence in the Commonwealth Housing Development (CHD). Each semester, at least fifty BC students spend after school hours tutoring young residents of the Commonwealth Tenants Association (CTA). Additionally, BC s 4Boston Program coordinates the volunteer efforts of another twenty BC students for four hours per week at CHD. BC students frequently bring their mentees 15

19 from CHD to the Flynn Recreation Complex and to BC football, basketball, and hockey games. Boston College/Allston/Brighton Community Fund The Boston College/Allston/Brighton Community Fund provides financial support in the form of grants to community organizations involved in educational or beautification projects. During the most recent cycle, eleven organizations received over $23,000 in grants. Since its inception in 1995, the Community Fund has awarded $500,000 in grants to nearly 100 Allston/Brighton organizations. The mission of the Community Fund is to support programs and services that are available to the people of Allston and Brighton. The Fund Committee seeks applications from organizations, associations and programs or for purposes based in Allston and Brighton. The Committee gives special consideration to the benefit of the potential award on the youth, senior citizens, and the needy in the Allston and Brighton neighborhoods. Beautification projects are also encouraged. The Fund was established by the Honorable Thomas M. Menino and Rev. J. Donald Monan, Chancellor of Boston College. The purpose of the awards is to supplement the existing budgets of established organizations and agencies in order to promote a program or service for which financial support is not otherwise available. Consultants are not funded. The Fund Committee also considers and makes awards to independent groups who present worthy proposals or sponsor worthwhile events. Boston College Neighborhood Center Founded in 1994, the Boston College Neighborhood Center works in tandem with the Office of Governmental and Community Affairs of BC to provide resources to Allston/Brighton residents and cultivate partnerships with schools, non-profits and social service agencies in the neighborhood. Additionally, the Neighborhood Center fosters the Jesuit tradition of service by offering volunteer opportunities for the Boston College community, such as the Food for Families Program and the Read-Boston tutoring program at local schools.
