… for whatever it’s worth…

Discussions on planning in Kenton County often prompt someone involved to question the need for land use planning when so much of the county’s developable land is “already built out.”

This month we highlight the value of that question in light of a growing local interest in revitalizing these suburbs developed in the 1950s and 1960s. (See the previous article relating how the City of Erlanger is addressing this challenge.) Interestingly, cities that developed before the advent of the automobile are providing a useful model for this redevelopment.

The July edition of UrbanLand magazine, published by the Urban Land Institute, speaks to this issue in an article titled “New Suburbanism: Reinventing Inner-Ring Suburbs.”  You can access the article here… for whatever it’s worth.
