Connections... Who & What
The Connections for Sustainability project sought to address sustainability as a
balance between the following three equally important goals, particularly in the West Side neighborhoods (Southernside, West End, and West Greenville) 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? These questions and more were discussed in

of each plan are implemented. With help from everyone, the process and outcomes
of this project will continue to enable city and regional planners, policy-makers, developers,
businesses and members of the community to sustain our community.
