CNU has worked with a number of states and municipalities on this effort and have done so through grants and contracts. The methodology is customized for each location, but the general process is as follows:

  • Partnerships: The PCR Faculty works closely with a local or state partner to understand local placetypes and the most problematic barriers within existing land use regulations
  • Research and analysis: What are the biggest challenges and opportunities facing local governments in the state or city?
  • Recommendation and documentation: What are the biggest little changes to meet the context and conditions of the locality?
  • Ground truthing and review: Are the recommendations meeting local needs? Can they be implemented? What’s missing?
  • Training and outreach: CNU delivers educational resources for local governments, partners, allies, and consultants to facilitate streamlined implementation of the recommendations.
