"The Pursuit of Responsible Development: Addressing Anticipated Benefits and Unwanted Burdens through Community Benefit Agreements"
Communities facing significant development projects want mechanisms to ensure environmental justice: that existing residents benefit from the anticipated positive outcomes and are protected from undesirable burdens. How can planners use Community Benefits Agreements (CBAs) to address unjust development practices? Professor Larsen will discuss case studies from Los Angeles, Denver, and Milwaukee.
The Urban and Regional Research Collaborative (URRC) Lecture/Discussion Series offers students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to hear and discuss urban planning issues in an informal setting. We will provide an informal lunch of sandwiches or pizza.
