Measuring the benefit of infill development

The City of Durham’s Belt Line project has tremendous transformational potential for Downtown Durham in its continuing evolution into a great place to live, work, and play. That transformational power, however, brings a real responsibility to the community to ensure that the project benets all of Durham and will maximize social, cultural, economic, and health benefits of public and private investment along the Trail.

Urban3 has pioneered methods and tools to help cities better understand and learn more about land use, building design, and property tax productivity. What can we in Durham learn from the economic analysis prepared by Urban3 as part of the Durham Belt Line Trail Master Plan? What is the connection between the physical design of our cities and their fiscal sustainability?
