Hoping to revitalize its Second Ward neighborhood, Hamilton turned to two unusual sets of urban planners.
The first: A group of 11 Miami University students finishing their degrees in urban and regional planning.
Through their Advanced Urban Planning class, they would get an opportunity to work for a real-world client and put their skills to practical use.
The second: People who live there.
When the students met with them to learn more about the Second Ward, they had the chance to shape the future of their own community.
