From Garden to City on a Hill: The Emergence of Green Urbanity
The epilogue looks at Austin in the twenty-first century, as the city has become a model of sustainable urban development based largely on its active and vociferous environmental community. These sustainability policies incentivized higher density growth in the urban core, which caused intense gentrification in many long-time minority communities. Minority environmental groups were unable to convince Austin’s political or environmental leaders that gentrification was an environmental issues, and thus many residents were displaced. The epilogue ends with some suggestions for mitigating the deleterious effects of the possessive investment in whiteness for Austin’s minorities.
