John Chavis Memorial Park

Built in 1937 in Raleigh, NC, the park underwent degradation and gentrification in the neighborhood in recent years. To better understand the needs of and place-based memories of African American residents, the city convened an 18-month community conversation in collaboration with Skeo Solution. A Public Leadership Group of different stakeholders with training in Collaborative Problem Solving and Building Cultural Competence led the conversation with the tools for productive, consensus-based decision-making. Together they created a vision and a master plan that connect the cultural heritages with vibrant future and satisfy the needs of different age groups.

Led by Skeo Solutions, Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department
