Webinar: Getting Equitable Development into the Plan
September 17, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
As sustainability initiatives gain traction, it is increasingly apparent that the pathway to a sustainable future will require strategies for ‘equitable development’. Equitable development encourages fairness in planning and development practice to ensure everyone has a safe and healthy environment in which to live, work, and play. Communities across the country are learning how to align quality of life goals while being socially responsible and supporting community parity. For this webinar, presenters will share how to alter policies that hinder the needs of underserved populations as well as how to rise above institutional inertia. The webinar will introduce new tools and strategies, and participants will learn how to calibrate existing tools in order to realize desired outcomes. Examples will showcase creative ways to integrate equitable development into the planning process to make communities better.
