Neighborhood Planning & Revitalization

While a long-range comprehensive plan describes a community on a broad scale, implementation requires a more detailed look.

Neighborhood planning illustrates ground-level concepts for urban design, land use, parking, circulation and other features.

Crafting neighborhood plans requires a collaborative team of planners, market analysts, urban designers, architects, engineers and transportation specialists. Often overlooked but also essential to the successful execution of neighborhood revitalization is the regulatory framework. It must permit a mix of land uses, control building design and scale, provide flexible parking requirements, and facilitate project reviews.

LSL Planning’s experience with neighborhood planning and neighborhood revitalization is extensive. We have represented both communities and property owners in the preparation of neighborhood development strategies in dozens of communities.
