ABSTRACT

This study aims to show how collaborative governance works for community-based urban regeneration. The Greater University Circle Initiative(GUCI) in Cleveland is obviously a different case from common public-led community development strategy in that it was launched by community stakeholders. We employed the theoretical model for collaborative governance to analyze key factors and processes that enabled GUCI to grow using within-case analysis and process-tracing methods. Since its beginning in 2005, GUCI has tried to improve the disinvested and deteriorated area by a variety of urban projects using local resources and embedded knowledge. Locally-based agencies such as community foundations and anchor institutions have been major force in designing the long-term regeneration strategy of GUCI. Moreover, diverse community organizations and civic associations have successfully engaged local residents to actively participate in the decision-making process and grassroots network. They served as a crucial channel for the preferences of community members to be reflected in urban planning process. The outcome of this research demonstrates the sucess of collaborative governance in urban regeneration depends on empowering as many local stakeholders as possible and building community wealth based on public-private collaboration and cross-sector partnership.
