Residents of existing neighborhoods do not always welcome new development, and project opponents often cite density as a primary concern. Discover how to focus community conversations about infill and redevelopment on design. In this program, planning and design experts will explore how communities can use planning, design, and policy to minimize and mitigate the impact on existing neighborhoods of dense infill and redevelopment. Learn how to address neighborhood compatibility concerns without sacrificing the goal of promoting walkable, urban places.
