Strategy LU3.5: Improve development with design standards that adhere to the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.

Strategy Description

Community Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED, is a multidisciplinary and collaborative design approach among planners, law enforcement, engineers, designers, code enforcement, and community stakeholders, intended to foster positive social interactions and deter criminal behavior within communities. Proponents of CPTED argue that proper design, use, and management of the built environment leads to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime, while improving community vitality and overall quality of life.


LU3: Promote flexible standards that promote quality redevelopment.
