Planning December 2018

Planning for Equity

The theme of equity runs through the December issue of Planning. In Detroit, Atlanta, and Chicago, planners are trying new ways to revitalize neighborhoods and avoid gentrification. Natchez, Mississippi, developed a downtown plan that, for the first time, reflects input from both white and black residents. In Intersections, "We Ask, You Answer" invites readers to describe their communities' strategies for equitable growth in 2019.
