December

MONDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2017MCCF MONTHLY MEETING
TOPIC:  Is High Density Always Good Density?
Current County planning policies reflect the belief that high-density growth will be more sustainable and will more efficiently use existing infrastructure.  However, with failing and largely at-capacity infrastructure, these assumptions are not holding true because of inadequate maintenance and obsolete infrastructure.  Recent research in planning studies are finding that the assumptions underlying local zoning codes and master plans are not necessarily so.  This session will raise whether current planning policies need rethinking.
