The 11th Street Bridge Park’s Equity Tool Kit

While creating our Equitable Development Plan, we have been fortunate to learn from our community, and colleagues and partners across the country. To help inform the efforts of community advocates, park leaders and municipal officials as they lead inclusive economic growth in their own neighborhoods, we have documented and are proud to share our process of creating and implementing a community-driven plan.
