"Creating Equitable, Healthy and Sustainable Communities"

This 80-page publication highlights how to integrate environmental justice, smart growth and equitable development approaches to create more inclusive and sustainable communities.

Published by the Environmental Protection Agency, it encourages the use of smart growth strategies to address  community challenges--from facilitating meaningful community engagement in land use and planning to preserving and building on features that make a community distinctive.

Providing an introduction to each strategy, with a description of what it is, how it can support sustainable development and examples of its use in real communities, this publication's goal is to create strong, vibrant communities that celebrate diversity.
