Equitable Development

Urban planning and development have a history steeped with racist policies and practices. There is a great deal of work to do to right the wrongs of the past and ensure that future revitalization initiatives include a diversity of community voices in decision-making. If you are seeking to ensure your redevelopment project or brownfield initiatives are serving the needs of everyone in your community, you’ve come to the right place! 

CCLR is partnering with Groundwork USA – a national grassroots network of local organizations devoted to transforming the natural and built environment of low-resource communities – to provide resources and assistance for more inclusive community development. The technical assistance team offers customized strategy, tools, and peer learning for brownfield-impacted communities who are looking to ensure equitable planning processes and build inclusive leadership and support for redevelopment. 

CCLR brings our robust experience working with environmental justice communities on brownfields projects to this program. We actively work to make sure that our programs reach those with the least resources and greatest need and adapt our assistance to meet a community’s unique needs.
