Mixed Use Development is a planning practice used in urban, suburban and rural areas that combines two or more different types of land uses - such as residential, commercial, services, and entertainment - in a compact setting that emphasizes pedestrian connectivity. Mixed use development typically emphasizes pedestrian orientation and connectivity, multi-modal transportation, compact residential development, open space preservation, interconnected streets, and integration of uses. Proposals for development feature horizontal (adjacent to each other) and/or vertical (in the same building) mixed use designs. The economic, environmental, and social benefits of mixed use benefits will be evaluated.
