The Equitable Development Scorecard (Harrison Neighborhood Association & others: 2015) allows development plans/projects and policies to be evaluated along 5 dimensions (community engagement, and land use, economic development, housing, and transportation practices) to ensure that everyone regardless of race, economic status, ability or the neighborhood in which they live has access to essential ingredients for environmental, economic, social, and cultural well-being including: living wage jobs, entrepreneurial opportunities, viable housing choices, public transportation, good schools, strong social networks, safe and walkable streets, services parks, and access to healthy food. See also the transportation edition (Cycles for Change: 2018) of the Scorecard for ensuring streets and public spaces are safe and accessible for people who bike, walk, roll and use public transit.
Report what percentage of your city is covered by 15-minute neighborhoods; report credits achieved by the development under the LEED-ND program (ideally including housing for different incomes and different stages of life); use a city staff or community process to predetermine high, medium and low score ranges on the Equitable Development Scorecard and report the score achieved by the development.
Certify the new development under the LEED-ND program.
Certify the development under the Living Community Challenge, EcoDistricts Protocol or RELi resilience standard.
