Compact areas are highly walkable with a rich mix of commercial, residential, and civic uses. Compact areas are well served by regional and local transit service, though not to the same extent as Urban areas, which can be significantly more intense. Streets are well connected and walkable, and essential destinations can typically be reached via a walk, bike, transit, or short auto trip. Compact areas contain a diverse mix of housing, from multifamily and attached single family (townhome) to small-lot single family homes. New Compact growth can occur in already urbanized areas, on the urban edge, or in larger-scale redevelopment projects.
