THE NEIGHBORHOOD MODEL: ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VA
Location: Albemarle County, VA United States. Neighborhood developments
This planning effort provides the county with a model for bringing urban form and character to development areas identified in its comprehensive plan. The model seeks to codify guidelines and ordinances in order to shape these areas into a collection of distinct neighborhoods and villages, set apart from more bucolic rural aras. The project team created illustrations of typical build-outs of a development area and a key site within a development area -contrasting them with images of a conventional suburban build-out of the same areas.Read more at this project's website.
