| |

Drawing on experiences of Transit Oriented Development, LA THRIVES and Los Angeles Regional Open Space and Affordable Housing (LA ROSAH) Coalition, created a report outlining five strategies that integrate urban greening (i.e. parks and green infrastructure investments) with affordable housing.

  1. Transformative Infrastructure with Housing sites + Anti-Displacement Strategy
  2. Neighborhood Transformation Scattered Site Approach
  3. Large Master Planned Development Infill Development
  4. Infill Development with Housing and Open Space on-site
  5. Infill Development with Housing and Open Space on different sites with Neighborhood

The authors conclude by summarizing: “This paper introduces an exciting opportunity to develop tools for an emerging concept of joint development linking affordable housing and urban greening…We view this as an introductory exploration for what has the potential to become a rich area of research and practice of community investment.”
