Interesting Article From USA Today

I just read this article from the USA Today when it was shared by the American Planning Association, Subdivisions go urban as housing market changes.  The article lends support to much of our efforts in recent years focusing on our traditional village centers and providing mixed use and residential opportunities within and close to these villages.

The article also reminds me that it is time to get back to the Chapter 40R based zoning proposal for land adjacent to the Dennisport Village Center, a proposal which calls for the creation of a compact residential neighborhood on land currently used for industrial purposes.
