Smart Collaboration: How Urban Parks Can Support Affordable Housing
It is increasingly apparent that the United States must consider reengineering the form of its fast-growing metropolitan areas, moving away from low-density car dependency and toward a higher-density pedestrian and transit orientation. But converting the "American dream" from a suburban-based paradigm back to one that is urban based (i.e., from driving to walking, biking, and using transit) involves actions on different levels from state, to city, to the private sector.
Smart Collaboration: How Urban Parks Can Support Affordable Housing, a new publication from the Center for City Park Excellence, summarizes research into some of the innovative activities taking place at the intersection of urban parks and affordable housing.
