Appendix C: Using CPTED for Neighborhood Problem Solving
The process outlined here is intended for a mixed use neighborhood with a diverse population and multiple issues. The problem-solving process in this case is tied to a broader neighborhood planning process; the CPTED plan must ultimately be adopted by elected officials.
The process is carried out by an interdisciplinary CPTED team of city officials with a neighborhood CPTED task force. This group collects and analyzes data and makes recommendations, which are carried back to the broader community for input and advice before the recommendations are incorporated into a plan for improvement. Staff provide organizational support for the process, which includes information packages, data analysis, copying and mailing, etc.
