Suburban Neighborhood Issue: Design of New Neighborhoods
Preferable to developments with only single uses in the Suburban Neighborhoods are mixed-use developments. Mixed-use development is recommended at Activity Centers which are shown in the Growth Management Plan on page 95. Activity Centers are areas of more intense land uses where more concentrated development is proposed including commercial, office and moderate to high-density multifamily development. This concept is discussed in more detail below.
Activity Centers are a good way to increase housing densities in appropriate locations within Suburban Neighborhoods and reduce further suburban sprawl.
