Breaking Ground: Planning and Building in Priority Growth Districts: A Guide for Local Leaders

Library Holdings.

The need to control sprawl, encourage Smart Growth, and create more livable
neighborhoods that instill a sense of community through traditional neighborhood design, are topics in the forefront of national discussions about community planning and development. There is an innovative land use technique that can be used by
communities to manage and define future growth in a way that creates more livable places, places that are environmentally, socially, and fiscally sound. Specifically, a
community may designate mixed-use Priority Growth Districts, or PGDs, which direct development to selected locations and also specify a design that is attractive to the community’s current and future residents. This report provides the necessary tools and describes the steps that a community may take to designate Priority Growth Districts
and reap their many benefits.
