A Better Way to Zone: Ten Principles to Create More Liveable Cities

The above-titled book by Donald Elliott will be of interest to planners and zoning officials.  According to the author’s Web site, “A Better Way to Zone provides a vision of future zoning that is not tied to a particular picture of how cities should look, but is instead grounded in how cities should work.”

The principles are:

1 – More Flexible Uses 2 – The Mixed Use Middle 3 – Attainable Housing 4 – Mature Area Standards 5 – Living With Non-Conformities 6 – Dynamic Development Standards 7 – Negotiated Large Developments 8 – Depoliticized Final Approvals 9 – Better Webbing 10 -Scheduled Maintenance
