Over an eight-month period, Bennett Partners worked closely with community leaders and neighborhood groups to develop a plan that built upon the community’s vision for the future of Near Northside.

By working with key stakeholders and neighborhood residents to understand the community’s vision, we created a strong foundation for the planning process. In a series of community meetings, neighborhood residents documented the strengths and weaknesses of the neighborhood as it exists today and the opportunities and threats the community will face in the coming years.

The final plan provided a series of concrete recommendations that sought to build on current revitalization efforts and turn Waco’s Near Northside back into the thriving community that it once was.
