Harnessing the Third Sector to Benefit the City
This book concludes by reiterating the central role played by Third-Sector organizations in urban redevelopment in greater Philadelphia as powerful sources of money and influence from the suburbs. It considers the politics of urban redevelopment in greater Philadelphia and shows that Third-Sector organizations compete not only for patrons but also for capital funds to support ambitious building projects. It also examines how recent mayors have tended to engage the Third Sector through transactional politics rather than comprehensive planning. It argues that mayors and other public officials can gain full benefits from the presence of community development corporations, universities, hospitals, and other nonprofit organizations in Philadelphia by treating them more as public-purpose entities than as private corporations. In addition to effective partnerships with nonprofit service providers, Philadelphia must adopt a more coordinated approach to Third-Sector institutions as developers.
