Where has Urban Sustainability Gone? The Affordable Housing Gap in Smart Growth Development in the U.S.Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This research focuses on the role social equity has played in sustainable development since the 1990s using the inclusion of affordable housing as a metric. Through the collection and examination of 492 "sustainable" and "smart growth," mixed-use developments it was identified that less than 40 percent included affordable housing. While this suggests that some progress has been made in the efforts to address social equity in development, it also indicates a significant disparity in the intended beneficiaries of sustainable development.
