Innovating For Integrated Planning & Zoning
What is the best approach for ensuring that long-range planning objectives are incorporated into a community’s development regulations? How do the elements of a comprehensive plan inform updates to the development code?
In our experience, the most effective way to ensure that the community’s vision is put into clear action is by undertaking consecutive plan and code updates. In our latest ‘Innovating For’ segment, Clarion Directors Leigh Anne King, AICP, and Donald Elliott, FAICP, discuss the benefits of integrating plan and code updates, citing examples from two of our client communities: Kannapolis, North Carolina, and Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
