A Survey of Public Officials and Developers in the Nation's Fastest Growing Single Family Housing Markets
This study gauges the impacts of subdivision regulations on the design of residential developments and the practices and attitudes of public officials and developers in the nation’s fastest growing single-family housing markets. The research used a nationwide survey of public officials and developers who work in areas experiencing rapid development to assess attitudes and perceptions and identify issues within subdivision regulations that members of the housing industry and the regulatory agencies feel affect housing development. It also partially replicates similar research done in 1976 to evaluate changing practices within the last 25 years.
