Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer Jim Peffley with thought leaders, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
In this episode, Jim discusses community revitalization with Wilmington, DE, Mayor Mike Purzycki. Purzycki shares his thoughts on the critical importance of creating healthy, thriving neighborhoods as the foundation for improving the City. The challenges facing some of Wilmington’s neighborhoods – poverty, blight, crime, school performance and joblessness – are not unique to Wilmington but are American problems. Tune in as Jim and Mayor Purzycki discuss taking these issues head on and improving communities and people’s lives through neighborhood investment and revitalization.
