Transportation, Land Use, and Community Design


Communities should change zoning laws to require or favor mixed-use developments that place common destinations within walking and bicycling distance of most residents and incorporate designated open space suitable for physical activity. (TLC-2)


  • Encourage local jurisdictions to replace separate-use zoning laws with those that require or favor mixed-use zoning or provide incentives for using a mixed use code. (TLC-2.1)
  • Encourage state governments to provide incentives for local jurisdictions to adopt mixed-use zoning laws. (TLC-2.2)
  • Develop and disseminate policy tools to reduce the possible impacts of gentrification on low-income neighborhoods that adopt healthy design principles, as they become more desirable and experience rising home values. (TLC-2.3)
