Policy Perspective: Embracing the Street
March 18, 2014
Streets can be designed to be safe and pleasant places that boost adjacent real estate. Here’s how:
- Embracing the Street: Policies Aimed at Transportation Safety Help Land Development (Urban Land Jan/Feb 2014: 94-96; UrbanLand online, Feb. 27)
- Dialogue: How Are Developers Accommodating Walking and Cycling? (UrbanLand online, March 10). Four developers from Houston, Seattle, Memphis and Nashville, and London, UK start a dialogue on experiences meeting increased demand for biking and walking.
- New Ideas for Walking and Biking in U.S. Transportation Programs (UrbanLand online, Feb. 28). A summary of proposals to improve federal programs for walking and biking.
- ULI’s Embrace of Complete Streets Reaches around the World (uli.org, Feb. 26). A list and brief analysis of ULI Advisory Services Panels and Technical Assistance Panels in the last three years that recommend “complete streets” or otherwise emphasize walking and bicycling.
Policy Perspective is an on-going project of ULI’s new policy effort. Each Policy Perspective topic will include an article in the print edition of Urban Land and will be coordinated with additional activities that will appear in UrbanLand online or on other web and social media platforms.
Up next for Policy Perspective in Print:
- March/April: Energy efficiency, with a special focus on multifamily development
- May/June: Tax increment financing
