"Growing in Place" Collaborative Planning with Dynamis Advisors


Imai Keller Moore and Dynamis Advisors have developed a program that provides neglected neighborhoods a strategy for economic sustainability by furnishing the components necessary to create a healthy community: healthcare & wellness, education, housing, employment and job training, coupled with commercial and retail incubation, day care and open spaces.


The goal of this program is to allow these communities to “grow in place” - by supplying the community with job training, the means to find employment and increasing the neighborhood’s rate of retention for trained professionals, IKM and Dynamis seek to create a town with a stable, sustainable population out of one small change.


The IKM/Dynamis program is being implemented in cities across the U.S., including New Orleans, Detroit, and Takoma Park, MD.
