Connections: Urbanists share their 2021 wish list

Local urbanists share their 2021 wish list. What laws or rules or regulations could change to allow for more community building? Outdoor interaction remains the safest way to get together, but urbanists say that some regulations make that more difficult. Some municipalities ban front-yard patios, for example, forcing interactions into backyards and fenced areas.

Our guests make their case:
