Program: As cities continue to expand, it is important to examine patterns of urban growth to determine if they are developing in the most compact and efficient manner. This program will use geographic information systems (GIS) to asses a city’s growth based on seven spatial measures. The result of these spatial analyses will be used to make recommendations for future growth, land use, and zoning, with the goal of protecting farmland, avoiding leap-frog development, and promoting infill development.
