If we want our communities to be safe, then we need to let them shine! Evidence shows that areas with street lights and tree-lined streets bring life to the surrounding environment. Barren areas lead residents and visitors to assume the community and those around them are uninterested in presenting an area of comfort and safety. Think of the many streets you’ve traversed, lacking in green vitality and organic life. Do they look like somewhere you’d want to take that morning run, your evening stroll or, better yet, raise a family? Our population and future prosperity come from building spaces that people feel at home in, and it’s the little things that can position the region as a place for long-term growth.
Forsberg strives to make the option of walking to your destination easier, and not just an opportunity for the select few in the right spot. Walk to School Day was a fantastic opportunity for communities to show that, together, we can make a future for our children that grants them the choice to live an active lifestyle. Communities play a huge role in making this possible, by coming together to craft an environment that is both safe and enjoyable to commute. We’re excited to see our region work toward creating healthy environments and supporting some of the same causes we do. We all can play a role in a brighter future, and it begins in our communities and on our streets.

We’re interested in taking a step back to examine how certain aspects, rules and regulations of development came into play and, better yet, how some of these traditional concepts could be modified for modern times. Zoning dates back father than we realize, yet those rules that were set decades ago are still practiced today. In many ways, zoning isn’t just a set of obstacles; it’s the backbone of assurance for residents and tenants, which grants peace of mind that new properties are crafted considering their health, safety and general well-being.
