4. SHARED GROWTH AND SHAPING THE PUBLIC REALM
Raymond Andrew Sih, UAP, LEED AP
Conventional zoning is essentially a legal framework that initiates development and directs the type, density, and location of land use. However, it lacks the specificity to shape the public realm to be more inclusive and sustainable. Innovative and site specific urban design and regulatory tools if implemented properly can achieve more tangible results in the built environment, such as preserving natural environmental features, protecting the unique character of a community, or controlling the kind of development in more detail. The paper discusses examples of urban design and regulatory tools used both here and abroad, the possibilities in their implementation, and how they can directly influence the physical form and performance of development.
