Advancing Neighborhood Change Through Equity and Inclusion Webinar (March 21, 2017)

Walkability is at the cornerstone of creating neighborhoods that are vital and vibrant, allowing all members of a community to enjoy health, social and economic benefits in a variety of forms. In this webinar we aim to look at how to protect and promote the identity and culture of a community, while making room for new development and change. We feature an example of a community lead equitable development plan, provide a toolkit of approaches used to prevent displacement and make sure that evolving communities remain affordable and diverse, and hear how affordable housing developers have re-oriented their efforts to build whole communities, by supporting small businesses, protecting the culture of a place, and re-asserting the primacy of resident engagement and the importance of listening.
