CommunityViz Development Scenario & Growth Allocation

CommunityViz is a tool to understand growth capacities and allocate future growth. With 5 basic inputs, it can be used to create future development scenarios and help understand their relative impacts. CommunityViz requires the following inputs to create a scenario:

  • The location of features that constrain development, such as water bodies, wetlands, and stream buffers
  • The type of place each parcel will become, and the intensity of each place type by jurisdiction
  • The current development status of each parcel relative to its future use
  • The factors that will influence how attractive each parcel is for development, termed land suitability
  • The types and amounts of growth that will be allocated, termed "growth targets"

Within the Growth Framework, higher suitability means a site is more likely to be attractive for development due to proximity to transportation investments, availability of sewer service, proximity to major activity centers, and location within local government planned growth areas. 

Scenario planning and alternatives analysis are used to explore alternatives for growth, development, and transportation investments in the region, as well as measure against regional goals and community values.
