dc.description.abstractEnvironmental justice has negative impacts on lower socio-economic status populations. The intent of study was to address environmental justice through the sustainable design measures of urban greening and green infrastructure in a low-income neighborhood in Douglas, Arizona. The site was thoroughly analyzed and evaluated for potential implementation of urban greening and green infrastructure practices. It was clear that the neighborhood was in need of a revitalization process as it lacked many of the amenities that relate to public health and quality of life. A selection of case studies was reviewed as a means of design inspiration and to evaluate the positive impacts rendered by the implementation of the designs. The preliminary design plan demonstrates that strategic planning in low-income neighborhoods can offer amenities that enhance the quality of life of the residents. The design plan also accounts for a more structured and organized space that facilitates the interaction of the residents with the environment. Although the benefits that the design plan fosters were derived from the selection of case studies, actual implementation and evaluation of the results of this proposal must be done to determine a strong and concrete conclusion. However, creating consciousness about environmental justice and how to approach it is of vital importance.en_US
