  • Business as usual: driving increases.
  • This plan is reinforced by research from the University of Utah for the National Association of Realtors; there will be a shortage of small lot single family residential housing, and there will be over stock of suburban housing. Not suggesting we entirely change existing suburban areas, some people want that.
  • Limited resources to consider different approaches?Tool to consider different scenarios and evaluate them.
  • Focus is on providing choices, and responding to the market preferences. How do we get things built? Cooperation with developers and lending community, through innovative zoning.
