RPA Launches “Design Your Town”

Design Your Town is an interactive web-based resource for citizen planners, professionals and anyone concerned about the quality of the villages and landscapes where they live. This website has attractive and sustainable designs for different kinds of places as well as the details, policies and regulations needed for implementation.  You can start by picking the kind of place you want to fix – from Downtowns to Rural Villages – or by searching through best practices for landscape design, connectivity and mixed-use development. It is valuable both as a practical tool and as a teaching resource. Design Your Town is a collaboration of Regional Plan Association, the Orange County Department of Planning, the Pace University Land Use Law Center and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, with additional funding from the Hudson River Valley Greenway.
