How Do We Realize Equity in Redevelopment?

Leo Vazquez from the National Consortium on Creative Placemaking

The moral reason for equity should be enough, but there are good economic reasons too. So how do we realize equity through redevelopment?

At the New Jersey Redevelopment Forum, during a breakout session, panelists discussed how their work is promoting equitable redevelopment, providing support for the economic case. They then engaged attendees in an open discussion on the considerations that must go into a redevelopment project if it is to be equitable.
