13. Creating Destinations Through Land Use Planning and Zoning Policies
Location: Omni Atlanta Hotel, North Tower, M2, International Ballroom C

The key to increased use of Activity-Friendly Routes is the presence of an adequate number of Everyday Destinations. The processes of comprehensive community land use planning and, in a more day-to-day sense, the designation of acceptable land uses through zoning and subdivision code will be discussed. The dynamic panel will share both general guidance and best practice along with real world examples.

Session Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe the role of planning and zoning to create destinations that people can access via activity-friendly routes.
  2. Explain the use of tools such as master plans and subdivision codes to improve walkability.
  3. Identify real world implementation of planning and zoning codes.
