EDC Toolkit Cover

The intention of this toolkit is to help our colleagues and neighbors to become equipped with possible ways to champion true sustainability as part of development – meaning that the development project addresses not only the economic issues but also the social and environmental ramifications of development activities. The hoped-for result is a more balanced approach to development, one that works in partnership with the community and benefits all, taking into consideration the multi-layered issues that need to be addressed and the long-term results of the project in the city. We hope to call new development projects into a more comprehensive accountability as we assist their incorporation into our city.

We present this toolkit to you, asking that you use it in a systematic, thoughtful way to dare to create a different narrative for development efforts in our city. This approach is neither anti-development nor anti-corporation; rather, it is pro-justice, pro-community, pro-sustainability, and deeply rooted in the basic human rights of all citizens and of the Earth.
