Support smart communities


An effective and equitable affordable housing strategy is essential for success

Amid rising housing prices, the trend towards counter-urbanization, and elevated financial burdens on middle and lower-income homeowners, planning professionals' work is more critical than ever. When people can't afford to live where they work, surrounding areas experience undesirable sprawl. Implement policies for sufficient affordable housing with GIS to support increased spending power, more educational opportunities, job creation and economic mobility, municipal revenue growth, less stress on transportation networks, and poverty reduction that ends the cycle of homelessness.

Depend on proven technology
