What is it?
The Equitable Development Scorecard (click here for the basic scorecard) outlines our neighborhood's priorities, goals, and values. The community will score each development proposal, to ensure that it aligns with our goals. Which are: affordable housing, local jobs, and a healthy, safe, and equitable neighborhood. YOUR values and priorities will be reflected in this community document.
Why is it important?
The West Side neighborhood has historically been disinvested in and our voices have not been heard (click here for proof). The Scorecard will be used to ensure that any development that comes to the West Side BENEFITS you and our neighborhood
How will it be used?
The Scorecard will be added to our District Council 10 Year Plan at City Hall and as a Small Area Plan for the West Side. Any developer who files a development proposal for our area will have to answer the questions laid out in the scorecard to be scored and then work with the community to ensure their development plans fit with our values & priorities for our neighborhood.
The Second Draft of the Scorecard is Available!
Check out the second draft of the Scorecard here. The first draft was created in early March 2018. The second draft was adapted and approved by the board of WSCO in May of 2018. Community engagement regarding this draft will take place through the summer.
