This chapter describes the strategies and inputs put in place to recreate community in each of the three mixed-income sites and lays the foundation for our analysis of emerging social relations, social organization, and broader integration in the chapters that follow. We first examine the vision, expectations, and goals regarding community building among the development teams and their key partners. In particular, we focus on the interplay and tensions between market and social goals, and explore development professionals’ expectations for change at the individual and community level. We then turn to the strategic inputs put in place by the development teams to achieve these goals. We organize our discussion around three main strategic orientations to recreating community at the sites: providing services to low-income residents to change their economic and social conditions, promoting and managing social relations, and shaping the environment through design, investment, and enforcement of norms and rules.

Keywords:   mixed-income sites, strategic inputs, expectations, social goals, market goals, resident services, social relations, norms, rules
