Creating Livable Communities

There is a growing awareness of the need to encourage compact, mixed-use, interconnected developments that provide mobility options and cater to a changing demographic. Sadly, too many local governments have land use policies in place that make it illegal & virtually impossible to create these kind of developments.

NUE Urban Concepts is working with local governments to remove impediments to mixed-use developments and adopt policies into their Comprehensive Plans and Mobility Plans to allow for Transit, Pedestrian, Multimodal, and Traditional Neighborhood Oriented Development, Mixed-Use, Urban Infill and Redevelopment.
