Both conservation and redevelopment are "project type" concepts but can be applied to areas other than
those designated as renewal projects. For example, build-up areas characterized by a preponderance of well-
maintained buildings are, in fact, self-conserving areas. Similarly, areas characterized by much private land
assembly and rebuilding activity are self-renewing areas. It is the city's responsibility to effectively assist and
constructively guide all renewal activities, without regard for type or sponsorship. The means whereby it does
so is the topic of this report.
