Traditional Neighborhood Development Standards

Amend your local development regulations to permit traditional neighborhood development (TND) in your community. TND's typically include small lot single-family homes, multi-family residences, and neighborhood commercial developments, all within easy walking distance of one another. Your local regulations may either require all new developments to incorporate TND principles, require adherence to TND principles only in certain districts of the community, or you may allow TNDs upon request by the developer, as an option under your Planned Unit Development requirements.
