Smart Growth Code Revisions Coming to Flagstaff

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Peak Properties

But the development is ahead of the law! Flagstaff City Staff has been busy developing revisions to the Flagstaff Land Development Code which will encourage Traditional Neighborhood Development or "New Urbanism." TND is like the old neighborhood you wish you grew up in --- a mix of residential, commercial, park and government space, where residents can walk to most activities. There is a Smart Growth Network and you can read all about it, including their guiding principles, at the SmartGrowth Online website.

I've blogged about Flagstaff's latest residential/mixed use neighborhood elsewhere and you can also see the list of scheduled city meetings regarding the code revisions at that post.

Here is a list of TND neighborhoods all over the country: TND Town Paper. In Flagstaff, we've been waiting for Presidio in the Pines for several years, but it looks like Aspen Place at the Sawmill, on Butler and Lonetree, will arrive first even though it started later.  Aspen Place at the Sawmill in FlagstaffTo the right is an artist's rendition of the layout for Aspen Place, with Butler Road running along the top and the to-be-reconfigured Lonetree Road on the left.

TND neighborhoods exist or are underway in Gilbert, AZ and Tucson, where the Mercado District of Menlo Park, is so often cited to the real estate community in Flagstaff as the community of the future.

Ann, That's a different type of recyling - bringing back the "old" neighborhoods where you could walk to work.

Great information Ann.  We're doing something similar with our City of Edgewood but we're challenged with attracting commercial development.

Flagstaff is lucky in the commercial development area because our population includes so tourists and weekend travelers. So there are more people buying per house than you may find in other areas. Our problem is in finding industry other than retail, because there is (or has been) a shortage of qualified people to fill jobs in the kind of high tech industry our green community wants. We'll see with the new job stats if that continues!
