With the CDS&E Department serving as the client and with a particular focus on equity rather than on stated objectives, these students investigated recent revitalization efforts pursued in Bethlehem and Lancaster in Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, DE. This report summarizes the students’ findings, includes forward-looking proposals designed to produce equitable outcomes in each city, and provides a blueprint for cities interested in considering equity as an objective in their future development efforts.

  • Slides presented at a forum held on May 12, 2014, in conjunction with the department’s Reinventing Older Communities conference, summarize the students’ work.
