Altamonte Springs, Florida TOD Master Plan Approved
On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, the City Council approved the TOD Plan. Here is the Executive Summary
For more than 25 years I have been practicing (you would have thought I wouldn’t still have to practice) the art of urban planning as a private consultant. During this time, I have developed a strong set of principles of what urban planning should be and can be; aspirational. Learning from history that good city planning stopped in the last century and how we can get back to creating great places for people. Cities last hundreds of years and the concept of making a quick return on investment is not typically in the best interest to this long term view of place. Creating viable, sustainable communities is an imperative to our culture’s success into the future. This series of power points presents my view of how to best shape the art of planning and move away from a land use approach to a development form vision of creating neighborhoods, communities and cities that celebrate people to create great American places.
