Toward a New Framework for Place-Based Urban Environmental Justice and Community Health

(p.195) 7 Conclusion
Neighborhood as Refuge

Isabelle Anguelovski

The MIT Press

Finally, chapter 7, the Conclusion, proposes a new framework for understanding environmental justice action in cities. The right to a healthy environment requires certain physical and psychological dimensions of community rebuilding and place remaking. For residents, this right cannot be separated from working on the land, border control, community engagement, and a renewed form of local planning and democratic practice. In some ways, this framework is not far from radical utopian urban planning procedures. All of its elements need to be in place to build just and revitalized cities. The planning and policy initiatives for sustained urban revitalization and environmental justice must avoid perpetrating new processes of mental and physical displacement for vulnerable urban residents. This chapter also reviews differences and nuances between neighborhoods as well as internal tensions and finishes with examining some planning and policy dilemmas in view of the Dudley, Casc Antic, and CayoHueso experiences.
