Mayors' Institute on City Design

This resource from The High Line Network, a group of infrastructure reuse projects and the people who are helping them come to life, includes lessons and case studies that demonstrate how to embed equity into parks planning projects.

“This toolkit is designed to help park organizations address inequities caused by infrastructural racism, and shape public spaces that bring social, environmental, and economic benefits to our communities. Community engagement is the foundation of all the tools, and together, they offer a flexible process for ensuring that public spaces and open space projects benefit the residents and businesses they serve and avoid displacing them.”
