Sacramento's efforts to promote density and walkability
Great article in the Wall Street Journal today focusing on Sacramento's efforts to impose density, transit-oriented development and walkability in a very car-driven town. As this article suggests, promoting these plans is not always easy, and developers sometimes have to get creative to get dense, mixed-use developments constructed. But, the wave is upon us, and I believe we will see more policies like this in the coming years, with the development and lending communities altering their policies accordingly.
