City Introduces Equitable Transit-Oriented Development Plan
WTTW | September 16, 2020
... Equitable transit-oriented developments take on a number of different forms, said Jacky Grimshaw, vice president of government affairs for the Center for Neighborhood Technology. Part of it is better access to jobs paired with better job opportunities in neighborhoods.
“What we want to see in these communities is there is a walkable opportunity for people to do their shopping, to go to day care, and at the same time not have to rely on cars,” said Grimshaw.
Other transit-oriented development plans haven’t been as equitable as this one plans to be. Nearly 90% of previous developments have gone to the North and Northwest sides.
