Equitable development at the city level must consider the needs of a broad range of communities, each with its own unique context, assets, and obstacles. Drawing on the experience of leaders both inside and outside government in Seattle, this webinar will address the complexity of embedding equity in municipal-level development planning and tailored solutions to meet the city’s most pressing needs. Join Tony To and Ubax Gardheere who are working to bring a strong racial equity lens to planning and development processes in the city, and Chris Schildt to discuss tools relevant to Seattle, but can be tailored elsewhere: expanding access to affordable housing in areas of concentrated wealth, stabilizing long-term residents in neighborhoods experiencing displacement, and catalyzing new opportunities that benefit low-income people and communities of color in the communities where they live.
