Why are so few cities, towns and neighborhoods in the United States walkable? Why is it so difficult to find vibrant communities where people of all ages, incomes and backgrounds can live, work, shop and play? The answer, in many locations, is that zoning codes and land use ordinances have made the creation of such places illegal. Learn how small-scale land use and zoning changes can help communities revitalize and thrive.
