Pathways to Urban Sustainability: Research and Development on Urban Systems - Summary of a Workshop
A more recent, completed effort evaluated the residential construction trends in urban centers, noting that center cities were gaining share of total development activity faster than suburban areas, even despite the market slow-down (“Residential Construction Trends in America’s Metropolitan Regions” was published in January 2009).
RESULTS, OUTCOMES OR IMPACTS TO DATE:
Effort #3 above is in beta testing; the others are still in development.
PERFORMERS/OTHER PARTNERS (FEDERAL, STATES, OR LOCAL):
Effort #2 above is an effort done in partnership with the Institute for Transportation Engineers; many of the others will likely involve local or regional government partners in their testing and roll-out (specific communities yet to be determined)
#1 – Phase 1 will be completed in December 2009
#2 – Will be completed by spring 2010
#3 – In beta testing now; will be completed by early 2010
