PROJECT INSPIRATION OF THE MONTH
Neighborhood Small Grants
We Are Public Housing, a project by the Center for Urban Pedagogy, aimed to improve the New York City Housing Authority’s accountability and increase resident participation through education and a strong call to action. They created a pamphlet for use during door-to-door outreach with information on how public housing residents could make their voices heard.
Want to make your own project a reality?
Neighborhood Small Grant applications due by January 5th!

TRENDS IN LAND USE
December Edition

A current project is seeking to develop new codes that will promote this compact mixed use development while mitigating some of the challenges that arise with new, more intensive buildings, such as design compatibility, building massing, and livability impacts like noise.
