Mixed-use development is essential for a sustainable, high-quality urban lifestyle. Mixed-use development implies fewer automotive trips, shorter travel times, smaller dwelling units, enhanced walkability, and a stronger sense of community. Despite these clear advantages, single-use zoning remains prevalent in cities today as advocates point to issues like compatibility of land-use and the isolation of noise, pollution, and hazards. Single-use zoning was essential for public health and welfare at the turn of the 20th century, mixed-use development is essential for health and welfare in the 21st century. As our society has evolved, land-use compatibility has become a matter of design, not distance.
