Last week Greater Ohio Policy Center, in partnership with the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, published our latest report, “Revitalizing America’s Smaller Legacy Cities: Strategies for Postindustrial Success from Gary to Lowell”. In the report, GOPC’s Torey Hollingsworth and Alison Goebel examine the trajectories of 24 smaller legacy cities across 7 states from 2000 to 2015 and identify strategies that are contributing to progress in these small to mid-sized legacy cities.
Since its release, the report has garnered attention from media outlets, city practitioners, and fellow researchers alike. Below is a wrap-up of the media coverage of the report to date.
