Community Design

Well-designed places have positive economic, health and wellness, environmental, and social benefits. They are also more resilient in the face of economic slumps and natural disasters. A network of well-designed communities is the key to strong regional growth. 

In the Rutland region, a well-designed community starts with a compact center surrounded by working or open space lands. Core principles of solid community design include walkability, mixed uses, connected streets and roads, incremental growth patterns, a human-scaled all-modes transportation network, and lasting architecture.
 
RRPC collaborates with towns to create well-designed, thriving places through our town planning programs.  We also review project site plans for developers, local planning commissions, and town development review boards to ensure that core principals of design are maximized and that projects can move through permitting processes as efficiently as possible.

We would love to meet with your planning commission, review board, or firm to explore how integrating great design principles can enhance your town or development project. Call toady!
