LIVABLE COMMUNITIES TOOLS FOR COMMUNITIES AND CITIZENS

Livable Communities Toolkit
Livable Communities Toolkit: A Best Practices Manual For Metropolitan Regions.  This toolkit presents practical approaches to regional and local development.  The toolkit has two sections: A Region In Balance and Tools For TownsA Region In Balance describes actions taken by other regions around the country to encourage better growth and provides some steps we might take toward a broader statewide approach to building balanced, livable communities.

Tools For Towns
covers eight development topics from agriculture preservation to rethinking zoning.  For each topic, we provide a quick and easy-to-read Fact Sheet to introduce the tool and a Technical Analysis that provides more detail on the "how-to's" of that tool.  The Technical Analyses provide information on what the tool can do, some of challenges, how it's been used in other places, and a model or sample zoning ordinance for easier implementation.
