Community Benefits Agreements (CBAs) advocate for equitable development by outlining the benefits in exchange for supporting a development project or rezoning but are highly criticized for several weaknesses:
Developers and stakeholders need more enforceability and accountability mechanisms.
The potential for power imbalances in negotiations can skew benefits towards more powerful stakeholders, leaving smaller or less organized groups disadvantaged.
CBAs commonly focus on short-term gains, neglecting long-term impacts and sustainability.
Therefore, while CBAs have the potential to be a valuable tool, their weaknesses are being carefully examined and mitigated to ensure that they truly serve the best interests of all stakeholders.
