This report examines how well Heritage Crossing, a completed Hope VI community, satisfies the aims of the Hope VI federal housing program, and how it functions as a community in general. It addresses a range of issues that emerged from interviews with Heritage Crossing residents and community stakeholders, including the pace of redevelopment in surrounding neighborhoods, safety, usage of recreational and community spaces, management, community organization, and participation. It also provides background information on the Hope VI program and Hope VI in Baltimore. The report concludes with recommendations and suggestions for the community and for government agencies responsible for Heritage Crossing and Hope VI.
