Mission: Through collaboration, DSCDO guides the physical, economic and social development of the neighborhoods it serves toward an improved quality of life. 


DSCDO will act as a catalyst for community building resulting in diverse, sustainable and desirable neighborhoods in which to live, work, play, shop and worship. 



DSCDO believes in the importance of urban neighborhoods for the future of our region, maintaining racial and economic diversity, representation of diverse people and opinions, and the power of everyday people to shape their own communities.
