It used to be that when a neighborhood started to become run down or dangerous or when businesses moved out, residents had little choice but to wait for someone else to step in and make changes.

That is SO 20th century.

Nowadays, a national nonprofit called the Better Block Foundation has all kinds of tools and resources to help neighborhoods get a glimpse of what a neighborhood could look like and how to move some of those temporary changes in a more permanent direction.
