Connections... Who & What
The Connections for Sustainability project seeks to address sustainability as a
balance between the following three equally important goals, particularly in the west side neighborhoods where
the need is greatest:
- Environment-Planet. Conserving natural systems and minimizing ecological
- Equity-People. Focusing on people and communities and their needs.
- Economy-Prosperity/Profit. Creating a vibrant economy through the
creation of wealth, prosperity, and jobs.
Affordable housing, economic development opportunities,
open space and especially transportation options will be the proposed connections between
the neighborhoods, the city and an improved quality of life.
What makes our community sustainable? What makes housing affordable?
These definitions and values need to be studied and debated. With help from everyone,
the process and outcomes of this project will enable city and regional planners,
policy-makers, developers, businesses and members of the community to sustain our community.
