Incremental Code Reform: Enabling Better Places

Why aren’t more cities implementing placemaking strategies, which are proven to expand economic activity, increase mobility, protect the environment, and create more equitable places? CNU’s Project for Code Reform seeks to streamline the code reform process by providing local governments place-specific incremental coding changes that address the most problematic barriers first, build political will, and ultimately create more walkable, prosperous, and equitable places.

CNU’s Project for Code Reform streamlines the code reform process by providing local governments with place-specific incremental coding changes that address the most problematic barriers first, build political will, and ultimately create more walkable, prosperous, and equitable places. Project for Code Reform accomplishes these goals while addressing the political, financial, and administrative realities of planners, elected officials, and planning commissioners. An incremental approach allows jurisdictions to set their own pace for code changes, prioritize coding efforts, respond to the community’s vision and needs, and create opportunities for greater community learning and understanding.
