Crime and Planning: Building Socially Sustainable Communities
CM | 1.25
Date: Tuesday, April 16
Activity Code: S633
Room: Regency D
Track: Neighborhood Day: Creating Land and Building Value in Neighborhoods, Two Centuries of Urban Visions Track
While concepts such as safe design and crime-opportunity mitigation remain important to effective neighborhood planning, research shows that few urban planners are familiar with these concepts and fewer still are capable of assessing the impact of design proposals on neighborhood crime levels. This session hopes to bridge this gap by exploring the concept of social sustainability, discussing the impact of planning decisions on neighborhood crime levels, and providing strategies to build crime-prevention concepts into everyday planning efforts.
