GLRPPR Sector Resource: Smart Growth Guidelines for Sustainable Design and Development

Title:
Smart Growth Guidelines for Sustainable Design and Development

Abstract:
This publication is a resource for communities that seek to locate, design, and develop housing -- particularly affordable housing -- in a way that reduces household costs, improves residents' quality of life, and invests public resources more sustainably. The guidelines can serve as a checklist for local officials, state or regional policy makers, developers, and community members to ensure that programs, plans, and proposed developments incorporate the elements needed at the location, site, and building levels to result in more sustainable, affordable housing.
