2 “Silicon Valley is at an important evolutionary stage... Our region needs to decide what kind of place it wants to become. The opportunity exists to evolve into a more sustainable form, one that blends the best of our natural environment with the vitality of an urbanized area.” Silicon Valley 2010 T he following presentation of computer-generated imagery offers a range of ideas about how we can build our communities. These images demonstrate a set of development principles that bring about land-efficient urban growth. These images show how communities can manage and direct growth in ways that minimize damage to the environment, reduce "sprawl", and build livable towns and cities. This is done by: mixing land uses taking advantage of compact building design creating housing opportunities and choices creating walkable communities fostering distinctive, attractive communities with a strong sense of place preserving open space, farmland, natural beauty, and critical environmental areas strengthening and directing development toward existing communities providing a variety of transportation choices making development decisions predictable, fair, and cost-effective encouraging community and stakeholder collaboration in development decisions
