Video Resource - AARP Livable Communities - Livable Lessons on Equitable Development - Lessons 1 & 2: https://www.aarp.org/livable-communities/livable-in-action/info-2021/video-christopher-coes-equity.html
Discussion prompt - picking back up on the conversation about equity from the 3/27 LRPSC meeting: as evident in both the APA Planning for Equity Policy Guide and AARP's Livable Lesson videos on Equitable Development, social equity means equitable access to programs and services, such as housing and transportation, as well as the unhindered ability to engage in political processes. As a member of the LRPSC charged with guiding policy on the LRP update, we are seeking your unique viewpoint on what equity in Longmeadow means to you.
- In your perspective, drawing on your personal and peer experiences, what equity topics would you like to prioritize in the Long Range Plan?
- Where are there opportunities to expand or improve aspects of life in Longmeadow?
