Abstract: Over the past three decades, there has been a discernible shift to ''restorative'' development. The longstanding approach to development that emphasized economic growth, short-term gains, and technical expertise has been largely replaced by a mode that prioritizes a more holistic view of the built and natural environment, seeks to strike a balance between ecological, social, and economic needs, and actively incorporates stakeholder perspectives. Looking specifically at forest collaboratives in the Pacific Northwest and brownfield restoration projects in the Midwest, this paper documents and explains the primary components of a new mode of development.

Brian Dill is an Associate Professor and the Director of Graduate Studies for the Department of Sociology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
