I am a student at the University of Calgary and I am doing my thesis on Density Perception. I am working with a community here in Calgary, AB (Canada) who have developed design principles concerning incoming residential and commercial development and the streetscape.

My thesis will test these new design principles to see if they affect the perception of density in this inner-city community. My thesis will also examine different implimentation strategies and their potential for sucess.

The land-use by-law is currently being rewritten in Calgary and the City is willing to look at different forms of implimentation for the design principles.

My questions are :

Does anyone know of any creative implimentation strategies in other cities or municipalities?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
