Making Connecticut and Westchester Towns More Livable

CT-Westchester Institute Report
A new study released today by Regional Plan Association examines how mayors from six communities in Connecticut and New York can revitalize their downtowns, promote transit oriented development, and provide residents with more walkable and livable communities. The 18-page report summarizes recommendations that resulted from a two-day-long intensive planning exercise in which the mayors of six cities, towns, and villages from New York and Connecticut worked with a resource team consisting of experts in planning, design, development, transportation, and landscape architecture. Each mayor presented his/her case study or specific problem to resolve, which was then followed by an hour and one-half brainstorming session about the solutions.
