DPIE and the Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative
The Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative
(TNI) is a major program of the Baker
Administration designed to improve
the quality of life for residents of six
challenged communities within the County.
TNI's goal is to improve these neighborhoods
by providing resources and attention to issues
and opportunities that will help improve the
local economy, schools, health care, public
safety and aesthetics.
DPIE actively supports and is strongly involved and committed to this initiative. Each DPIE liaison helps in numerous activities including managing a blight reduction program and participating in bi-monthly inspection tours of each TNI area with a code enforcement inspector from DPIE's Enforcement Division to assess the physical condition of homes or buildings in each TNI area — identify properties not in compliance with County codes and determine which are candidates for clean-up, fix-up, board-up or demolition (in cases of unsafe structures that are beyond repair).
