EPA Smart Growth Book cover

Communities around the country are embracing and implementing smart growth and sustainability practices to create mixed-use, walkable places that include a range of housing and transportation choices for residents, workers and visitors. To achieve this vision, local governments are continually assessing and re-evaluating their zoning codes and regulations to ensure there is a clear and predictable process. The development community has also embraced this vision focusing on innovative practices to produce higher efficiency buildings and distinct neighborhoods.

In this Solutions Series program, Kevin Nelson focuses on key zoning fixes and case examples geared toward developers and real estate owners looking to encourage this type of community development.
