Title: Interactive Planning Tool for Sustainable Urban Planning in a Built, Urban Community
The Duquesne University team will create a tool that can be used to redesign the municipal zoning ordinances for the Borough of Dormont, Pennsylvania. The project will use the existing zoning groundwork set by the Borough to promote sustainability and development by encouraging the use of “green building”, increasing community connections, civic involvement, maintaining historic preservation, and eliminating zoning restrictions to better suit the needs of a built urban environment.
