A Message From County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III

We launched our Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI) in April 2012. This initiative focuses on uplifting neighborhoods in the county that face significant economic, health, public safety and educational challenges.
TNI grew out of the successful Summer Crime initiative, a police-directed endeavor that put extra resources in 5 neighborhoods acutely affected by violent crime. We evaluated data collected and determined that we could have a greater impact on raising the quality of life in areas deemed most in need of help by taking a more holistic approach to addressing the challenges of troubled communities.

Brief Overview of TNI

The Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI) is an effort by the county to focus on uplifting neighborhoods in the county that face significant economic, health, public safety and educational challenges. Through this initiative, the county will improve the quality of life in those neighborhoods, while identifying ways to improve service delivery throughout the county for all residents.


To achieve the County Executive’s Vision of a Thriving Economy, Great Schools, Safe Neighborhoods and High Quality Healthcare by targeting cross-governmental resources to neighborhoods that have significant needs.

TNI Key Indicators

The Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative was designed on the premise of using data to drive decision making. To assist TNI teams with making decisions that positively impacting their communities, key community indicators have been selected.
At different times, and perhaps in different locations, some indicators may be more important than others. These indicators will impact the major indicator of neighborhood health - property values - which we will also track over time.
