About CBI

Welcome to CBI from Community Building Institute on Vimeo.

The Community Building Institute helps communities organize their own redevelopment by tapping into the passion of their residents and identifying the physical assets of their neighborhoods.

The goal is to develop a coordinated plan of improvement that incorporates all the major elements a community needs to really thrive - housing, schools, health care, transportation, jobs and business.

The Community Building Institute presents itself as a partner for communities that are ready to grow into desirable and healthy places to live and work.
