Register for Metropolitan Council’s Workshop on Planning for Equitable Development: Including Land Use, Housing, Parks, and Transportation

June 27, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC-6

Workshop

metclogo4c-180x133

WHEN: Tuesday, June 27, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. CST
WHERE: Amherst Wilder Foundation, Auditoriums A and B, 451 Lexington Parkway North, St. Paul, Minnesota.

As part of the PlanIt series, the Metropolitan Council is collaborating with the Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE) and the Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) to provide a training and speaker series to help inform 2040 comprehensive plan updates. Registration is now open for the June event. Space is limited.

Integrating racial equity into the plan for growth in communities increases the likelihood that benefits and burdens will be equitably distributed. We must plan for people and our environment. Land use policies drive the creation of communities, and housing, parks and transportation are all critical for creating equitable communities. This session will continue exploring ways to use a Racial Equity Analysis in comprehensive planning. Local experts will provide insights on effective principles and practices for engaging communities for the process. Panel representatives will be present from:

  • The Alliance for Metropolitan Stability
  • Neighborhood Leadership and Organizing Program (NLOP) of the Center for Urban Regional Affairs at University of MN
  • Metro Transit Everyday Equity Fellows Program
