PLAN FOR PEOPLE THROUGH MOBILITY & QUALITY OF LIFE

Mixed-use development places residents and commercial businesses in close proximity, which can spur conflicts about noise, trash, vandalism and social disorder. Coordinated approaches to set community standards, update zoning regulations, and build an efficient late-night transportation system allow for the density of social experiences with minimal impacts on quality of life. 

The Mobility measure evaluates systems to improve late-night transportation options and traffic safety.

The Quality of Life measure examines your city's current approach to sound, litter and trash management.

QUESTIONS TO EVALUATE YOUR CITY'S PLAN FOR PEOPLE

  • What is the social occupancy (combined seating of venues) in your hospitality zone?

  • How current is your sound ordinance for construction of venues and residential housing?

  • Is there a staff person in your city (night manager) for planning and mediation?

  • What transportation services are available for staff and patrons after midnight?

  • When was your trash management and schedules updated?

  • What is the pedestrian count at primary crossings at night?

  • Do you provide public restrooms for late-night use?

  • What social services are available to facilitate access to resource for the homeless?

  • How are conflicts between residents and venues resolved?
