Webcast: Whatever Happened To Equity Planning?
The 1975 release of the Cleveland Policy Planning Report marked the first time a city planning department had eschewed a singular focus on zoning and land use issues. Instead, the Cleveland City Planning Commission sought to "...give priority attention to the task of promoting a wider range of choices for those individuals and groups who have few, if any, choices" in all its actions. The actions that followed sent waves not just through Cleveland but through the planning profession as well. Can we see its influence today? This is our opportunity to ask two of the architects of that document.SPEAKERS: Norman Krumholz is a Professor in the Levin College of Urban Affairs who earned his planning degree at Cornell. He served as Planning Director of the City of Cleveland from 1969-1979 under Mayors Carl B. Stokes, Ralph J. Perk, and Dennis Kucinich. Ernie Bonner was the first staffer hired by Norman Krumholz as Cleveland Planning Director. Bonner, former Portland Planning Director, was instrumental in many of Portland's signature planning landmarks. Live streaming video available at the link below.
