More about Growing Wealthier
With the pace of economic recovery uncertain and the real estate market still uneven, developers, policy makers and transportation professionals seek information to guide their investments. At the same time, market analysis reveals pent-up demand for walkable communities driven by demographic changes poised to transform the real estate industry. In CCAP’s comprehensive new report, Growing Wealthier: Smart Growth, Climate Change and Prosperity, written by Chuck Kooshian and Steve Winkelman, we consider ten common-sense principles that can help guide new development in ways that respond to emerging market demand and bolster the economy. We find that an inclusive planning process following smart growth principles that yields more walkable neighborhoods with broader options for housing and transportation can help communities, businesses and individuals make money, save money and improve quality of life.
