I am looking for examples of sustainable, semi-high density within small towns; meaning a population of 50,000 or less.
The goal is to filter out what does and does not work when creating economic redevelopment, along with infill projects. Since I am working in Israel, what is considered rural here is a different standard then most US cities. Also, density is going to continue to be necessary due to the severe lack of land.
There are two different focuses within our research:
The first being, how to add higher density, mix use, and neighborhood stores into preexisting suburban areas.
The second focus is on trying to create a sense of community within rural, commuter towns.
So far I have already looked at Petaluma's Theater District - California, Prairie Crossing, and Buena Vista - Colorado.
