NXST White Paper: Innovative Approaches to Equitable Development

By June 27, 2017 April 15th, 2019 News, Street Smarts

Next Street is excited to announce the release of a new white paper:

Innovative Approaches to Equitable Development in America’s Cities


Over the past 11 years, Next Street has worked with dozens of local businesses, community-based organizations, government agencies, and anchor institutions to develop innovative approaches to place-based community economic development. We wrote this paper with the goal of lifting up some of the best practices we have seen in the field, with guidance for local leaders (and leaders-to-be) driving or launching initiatives that aim to cultivate economic development for the benefit of existing residents.

We framed several emerging and promising approaches and offer considerations for the adoption of those models in other communities. In particular, we reviewed four different approaches to community economic development, examining how new efforts were put into practice in four cities.
