Sustainable Community Development

Units: 12

This course will involve in-depth examination of the economic and social value that is created when development occurs in a sustainable manner. The various components of comprehensive community development will be defined through class lectures, guest speakers, and case studies. These components will include: housing, business and economic development, cultural and social development, transportation systems, and open spaces. Economic and design comparisons will be drawn between sustainable and non-sustainable models of development.
