Sustainable Land Use Model Regulations

toolbox1

CRCOG’s innovative booklet of Sustainable Land Use Model Regulations equips towns with model regulatory language covering ten specific topic areas, including Housing Diversity and Affordability (with a focus on accessory dwelling and live/work units). A separate section focuses on inclusionary workforce housing as an element of compact, mixed-use development patterns. The project, funded by a HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant, also included the creation of renderings to help communities visualize the physical impact of implementing the regulations. The visualizations were created for urban, suburban and rural communities at both a bird’s eye and street-level view.
