Live Salina is a housing and neighborhood strategy developed to address a full range of issues, from broad housing development policy to detailed redevelopment strategies. Learn about how the community is taking incremental steps to build momentum for community reinvestment.
Many small to mid-size city leaders have a growing interest in promoting infill development that more efficiently uses city services; however, many communities lack the builders that are familiar with this type of product. Salina was no different, wanting to find a way to encourage infill development that would strengthen existing neighborhoods and encourage more affordable housing. This session will summarize the policies and programs that were identified to facilitate more balanced development and create environments for successful redevelopment.
- Understanding market forces that discourage builders and developers from doing infill projects
- Identifying strategic residential and commercial projects in a neighborhood that can catalyze redevelopment
- Learning about creating incremental programs that create momentum for desirable redevelopment
- Reaching consensus among conflicting philosophies of development and housing delivery
