Green Zones are rooted in environmental & economic justice, antidisplacement, equity, policy, and much more. We know that the residents of Phillips, Cedar-Riverside, and the Northside have been historically overburdened by environmental conditions such as traffic and stationary pollution sources, brownfield sites, blight, and substandard housing, and those areas have been designated as Green Zones by the City of Minneapolis. Green Zones is a multi-sector effort aimed at remediating this damage as well as improving outcomes for residents’ health, wealth, employment, and education – Without displacing folks!!!
