Description:

With the multiple crises of municipal insolvency, climate change and citizen pushback against government regulation, it makes sense to consider a new “balance sheet” approach to granting development approvals. Such an approach will screen for more compact, centrally located, high-value buildings that pay back the municipality’s initial infrastructure investment much more quickly.

This fiscally-driven regulatory strategy is simple and non-ideological.  By “following the money” it achieves Smart Growth / New Urbanism outcomes without invoking either term. In so doing, it has the potential to reduce and even eliminate many cumbersome and highly subjective development regulations.

Peter Katz, author of The New Urbanism (McGraw-Hill 1994), was the founding director of the Congress for the New Urbanism and a co-founder of the Form-Based Codes Institute. He writes and consults on matters of community planning, real-estate marketing and development regulation.

Presented by CNU New York in partnership with Empire State Future and Archtober.
