Life in the Livable Community

Protecting your heritage fosters livability, producing the appropriate mixture of amenities that make life enjoyable. Follow the links to find out how to design livable places.

  1. Livable communities accommodate both cars and pedestrians but privilege people.

  2. In livable towns, the street is life, the street is the public’s meeting ground, the street gives meaning and shape to downtowns.

  3. Big-box franchises threaten the elements of the local economy that help create livable communities.

  4. While livable towns certainly have the potential to attract tourists, the community’s first priority is its residents.
