ZONING + POLICY ANALYSIS
Cascadia Partners helps communities align zoning and policy with their Vision using a unique and rapid pro-forma and site design process. We begin by modeling the financial feasibility and site design impacts of existing zoning standards - a process rich with lessons on why the development communities want to see is not happening. We then model alternative zoning standards that are more market-feasible and aligned with the community's vision. The impact of incentives and affordability tools can also be tested, such as affordable housing density bonuses, tax abatement, etc. The lessons are summarized into helpful, easy-to-understand info-graphics.
