This article examines urban restructuring with city-building nonprofits efforts in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It shows that as residents began to see themselves as agents of neighborhood change, they came into conflict with the revitalization objectives of the nonprofit’s funders. And, while many residents actively challenged the direction that the neighborhood initiative took in focusing on housing redevelopment for more affluent populations, a core group maintained their commitment to a community building approach toward neighborhood redevelopment. Between 1998 and 2014, over half of the original residents were displaced or left as neighborhood housing values dramatically increased, rendering the area inaccessible for low-income populations
