Racial Equity and Inclusion - Community Planning and Zoning - Discussion Session 1
Presentation and discussion to bring awareness and need to address racial inequities. We center race in our equity work because we know historically and currently, race is the biggest predictor of disproportionate outcomes and disparities in the United States of America. Good government is impossible without racial equity. Creating a more inclusive community requires an understanding of the disparate impacts of planning policies, regulations, and programs on black, indigenous, people of color communities. Access to housing, transportation, wealth accumulation, and services are inextricably linked with this long history. Staff will explore the history, some of the ongoing efforts to address inequity, and begin the discussion on how we move forward. This is expected to be the first session of a series of discussions.
Action Requested: Discussion and input.
Staff Planners: Angel Bond, Kathleen Bracke, Dale Case, Alberto De Los Rios, Rick Hackett, Dyan Harden, Kathy Sandoval - Community Planning & Permitting; Rachel Arndt - Boulder County Public Health
