In commemoration of the fourth anniversary of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities, a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Transportation, EPA released the second edition of a study showing that certain kinds of land use and transportation strategies can help reduce the environmental and human health effects of development.
The study, Our Built and Natural Environments: A Technical Review of the Interactions Among Land Use, Transportation, and Environmental Quality, outlined a number of strategies to mitigate development-related environmental effects. Many support the types of development in which many apartment firms are currently engaged, such as higher-density, transit-oriented and mixed-use development.
