    REALTORS® Help Cities Plan for Walkability

    There is currently a big focus in both the private and public sectors on re-examining and re-doing existing buildings and communities. New shopping malls are not being built—but underperforming malls are being redeveloped. To meet the demand for affordable homes in existing neighborhoods, accessory dwelling units are being added into the mix of housing options. Cities are retrofitting their streets to meet growth by making them more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly. The new neighborhood—whether a community newly constructed or an older place reimagined. With grant support from NAR, Boise Regional REALTORS® and five other REALTOR® associations partnered with their local governments to sponsor “Walkshops.” Read the article, featured in the Winter 2018 issue of On Common Ground.
