What is it?
The Equitable Development Scorecard outlines our neighborhood's priorities, goals, and values. The community will score proposed developments on the West Side, to ensure that it aligns with community goals. Which are: affordable housing, local jobs, and a healthy, safe, and equitable neighborhood. West Side values and priorities are reflected in this community-created 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 West Side Community 10 Year Plan at City Hall. Any developer who files a development proposal for our area will 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. 3/18/20 - City Council passes Amended West Side Community Plan - Link to City site.
How was it made?
Following the 2018 West Side Action to Equity Series, a team of West Side resident volunteers came together to draft the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard. This involved extensive community engagement and feedback sessions and innumerable drafts of the document. The timeline below gives a snapshot of its creation. Learn more about the West Side Action to Equity series in the "Previous Work" section below.
