Rethinking Urban Revitalization
April 10, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
When it comes to urban revitalization projects, community concerns have not always been taken into account. The Eastwick Neighborhood in Southwest Philadelphia is no different. Located in the heart of a number of environmental hazards, the Eastwick community is extremely vulnerable to the oncoming effects of climate change. In 2017, The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority sought to address these mounting risks with the Lower Eastwick Public Land Strategy. This plan is taking an innovative approach to urban revitalization through resilience planning efforts. Join the Office of Sustainability, The Temple University Library, and BRIC for an interactive discussion with planners and community members alike about the progress of the project so far, and why community engagement in urban revitalization is a core part of resilience.
