Community Safety by Design: Preventing Violence through Land Use

Email Print

Description:

Decisions about how land is used, by whom, and for what purposes hold immense potential to prevent violence before it occurs. Yet, despite the connection between land use and community safety, land use decisions are rarely made with violence prevention in mind. Developed with funding from The California Endowment, Community Safety by Design: Preventing Violence through Land Use explores the nexus of land use and neighborhood safety and analyzes the implications of the current state of practice. Using the Spectrum of Prevention as a framework, this publication offers recommendations for creating safer communities through a deeper understanding of the intersection of place and safety.
