I was looking for articles like this last week to help address issues with crime in my own neighborhood. I found the following Strong Towns articles:
- How Something as Small as Street Lights can Reduce Crime14
- Combating Crime Through Neighborhood Connections20
- Can Paint Help Prevent Crime in a Troubled Neighborhood Park? 14
- How Jobs Make Us Feel Safer—Even in the Face of Crime13
I know all of these don't discuss job creation explicitly, but the idea of making small bets to boost the quality of life in neighborhoods while reducing crime was really inspiring.
