Local Government Commission's featured guidebook! Smart Growth Zoning Codes: A Resource Guide

Local Government Commission


Communities throughout North America are calling for development that creates human-scale neighborhoods and not "garage-scape" subdivisions. Unfortunately, many local governments' zoning codes are actually standing in the way of the type of development that residents want.

Based on the Local Government Commission's research of more than 150 "smart growth" zoning codes from across the nation, this guidebook will help planners design a zoning code that encourages the construction of walkable, mixed use neighborhoods and the revitalization of existing places.

Each chapter analyzes a critical issue – such as design, streets and parking – and highlights exemplary codes from across the country. The guidebook comes with a CD-ROM that contains copies of some of the best zoning codes in the United States and other resources.
