Livability Case Studies

 
The National Association of Regional Councils is working toward the creation of a "how-to" livability guidebook intended for planners, local elected officials and other stakeholders interesting in creating livability programs in their communities. The livability guidebook will include information about:

- Livability definitions, strategies and federal level livability principles
- Model ordinances, zoning codes, life cycle costs, design considerations
- Funding strategies and opportunities
- Performance measurements
- Leveraging resources among Federal, State and City levels of government
- Marketing/Communication Strategies
- Case Studies

We are searching for replicable case studies that can be used to help guide future organizations in carrying out their livability efforts. The following case study survey is intended to allow NARC to the develop the final document case studies.
