America Walks engages and empowers communities across the US to create safe, accessible, and enjoyable places to walk and move. Increasingly the infrastructure changes that make places more walkable are creating rapid change and potentially contribute to the displacement and disenfranchisement of some community members. To ensure that community improvements can allow residents to stay and thrive in place, a deliberate, inclusive plan that reflects community priorities and safeguards local culture and affordability is required. Equitable Development: Back to Basics is the first in a three-part training in partnership with the 11th St Bridge Park Project that will explore the practice of Equitable Development and hear from experts on the ground who are on the path to creating communities for all.
Attendees of this part will:
Learn about what equitable development is and how to get started developing an Equitable Development Plan.
Hear from experts as to why equitable development is needed.
Explore the benefits of equitable development for communities.
Following this first session, registration will be made available for the second session, Equitable Development: Starting on the Path (May 20, 2019), and the third session, Equitable Development: Who’s at the Table? (June 17, 2019).
