Connecting the New 15th Ward
Blueprint 15 is working with residents, community partners and local leaders of the old 15th ward to reconnect and rebuild what was once a vibrant and thriving neighborhood. We invite you to learn more about this neighborhood and our work and get involved!
Our Mission & Vision
Blueprint 15’s mission is to work with current neighborhood residents, community partners, and local leaders to transform the historic 15th Ward neighborhood. We believe it is a requirement that every person has the opportunity to achieve their highest potential through education, economic inclusion, and wellness.
Our vision is a diverse, mixed-income neighborhood that is safe, vibrant, and well connected with sustainable pathways to build generational wealth. Our community will consist of excellent neighborhood schools, health and wellness programs, and economic development opportunities for current residents of all ages.
