Review the most traditionally desired neighborhood attributes in combination with the emerging demands of the aging population and the millennial and Z generations.
Communities face a series of challenges in terms of attracting and managing appropriate growth and its subsequent traffic, maintaining control over operating budgets, reducing negative environmental impacts and improving resilience to external fiscal, political and climatic shocks.

The overall challenge then, becomes that of creating an approach to neighborhood retrofit or development that simultaneously addresses the widest spectrum of the above issues while maintaining the broadest market appeal and financial viability possible.
This is a highly visual webinar by our expert speaker, Doug Pollard, which relies most heavily on real life photos from many communities supplemented, when necessary, by research and survey results.
