The Concentrated Development Vision
Development in this scenario will be concentrated around regional assets and in areas that already have the infrastructure to support it. The rehabilitation and/or repurposing of vacant and underused structures would be encouraged, along with a more broad commitment to infill development – whether it makes use of existing structures or vacant lots. The preservation of agricultural land and other open space would be a priority, upon agreement by the property owner, as well as encouraging more connection and cooperation between the Region’s communities.
