    • Develop in biggest cities as above, but less dense, plus additional compact, mixed use development along transportation corridors

      “Smarter Suburbs”

    • Growth in locations above but at lower densities. Additional growth at the region’s edges, balancing jobs to housing and housing to jobs

    The Alternatives in Black and White

    These maps show in bold relief the impacts of the three smart growth alternatives — as well as the Current Trends Base Case — on urbanization in the Bay Area in the year 2020. They indicate primary areas of change in each alternative and the Base Case, including redevelopment of already developed areas (“infill”) and construction on currently undeveloped lands (“greenfields”).
