Breaking the Code

Here is a great presentation on some of the issues communities in the US (and therefore Canada) face when planning and developing Smart Growth neighborhoods. I uploaded the presentation with SlideShare which only took the first 78 slides. You can download the whole 93 slide presentation from our document archive. We would like to thank Jeffrey Tumlin at Nelson\Nygaard Consulting for allowing us to post this very informative presentation.

Over the last four years, Nelson\Nygaard has completed over three dozen station area, infill development and Transit Oriented Development projects across the United States. In our work we continually find that federal, state and local regulations make Smart Growth more difficult to build than conventional sprawl. This presentation identifies 12 of the most common regulatory obstacles preventing Smart Growth -- and what local communities are doing to get around those obstacles.
