Manage the growth of neighborhoods in a sustainable manner
Whether in urban, suburban, or rural areas, planners are expected to manage the long-term growth of communities in a viable way. Local government planning professionals must plan for varying levels of growth based on the needs and desires in each neighborhood. In today’s environment of increased counter-urbanization, this can cause new stresses on communities that weren’t anticipating rapid levels of growth. GIS tools provide the technology for planners to test build-out capacity in neighborhoods based on established parameters and provide multiple data-driven development scenarios to administrators, community leaders, and the public for feedback.
