Great neighborhoods are not great by coincidence. They are great because they are safe and they offer opportunities for creativity, diversity and mobility.
Mostly, neighborhoods become great because people there care for one another and participate in community life. The AlterNation vision of great neighborhoods is part of our SafeGrowth® philosophy. Read about it on our SafeGrowth© website
SafeGrowth® is a people-based planning method for creating 21st Century neighborhoods of imagination, livability, and safety. It develops new relationships between city government and residents in order to prevent crime and plan for the future. While technology and evidence-based practice plays a role, SafeGrowth® is based on community building through annual SafeGrowth® plans and neighborhood problem-solving teams networked throughout the city.
AlterNation uses new crime prevention and crime analysis methods, sometimes called crime science. These methods help organizations like police, community groups, urban designers, and companies seeking safer places. Our clients establish high functioning, problem-solving teams and create learning organizations.
