Lessons Learned in Providing On-Site Open Space for Multifamily Developments
With rising land costs, cities are finding it increasingly difficult to create new parkland to serve the increased density necessitated by demographic changes and smart growth principles. Thus, it's becoming increasingly important for cities to update regulations to provide for usable on-site open space associated with multifamily development.
In a article examining the goals, processes, regulations and implementation of on-site open space for multifamily developments, Bengford reaches some interesting conclusions, including the benefits of encouraging a range of open space types and his experience that bigger is not necessarily better.
