Project Scorecard Template - America

INTRODUCTION v
How to use the Smart Growth Code and Zoning Audit
Preparation
You will need as much information as you can get about the
proposed project (including maps, plans and street and building
designs).
Provide the scorecard to the developer ahead of the review (and
preferably very early in the project development process) so the
developer understands the standards by which you community will
measure their proposal.
You may choose to discuss the scorecard with the developers to
clarify the standards and your community's expectations.
Your community can choose to emphasize specific sections of the
scorecard in its evaluation process to highlight important
elements.
You can choose to emphasize the section on Environmental
Protection for projects located in environmentally sensitive areas
or choose Pedestrian Safety, Streetscapes and Parking for
projects within designated downtowns, town or village centers.
(Your community can choose to require that the project meet only
Excellent standards in these categories.)
Emphasizing or de-emphasizing sections of the scorecard should
be based on the community's long-range land use plan or the
comprehensive plan or the community's general or master plan.
If you are using the scorecard to help developers improve
their project proposals or achieve a set standard to receive
incentives, then you should apply the scorecard several
times to measure where the proposal has improved and to
identify elements that still need to be addressed.
Organization
This tool is organized into eight sections:
A. Location and Service Provision
B. Density and Compactness
C. Diversity of Use
D. Diversity of Housing
E. Accessibility, Mobility and Connectivity
F. Pedestrian Safety, Streetscapes and Parking
G. Environmental Protection
H. Community Needs and Local Development
These eight sections reflect the basic smart growth concepts: that
growth should be directed towards existing communities, and
away from designated agricultural, open space, cultural and
environmentally sensitive areas; and, that development should
occur at densities that reduce patterns of sprawling land
consumption and encourage walking or biking.
Each section will list a set of questions to "ask" about the project.
and each question will list specific project characteristics that are
rated as Poor, Good, Very Good or Excellent depending on how
closely the characteristics adhere to the principles of smart
growth.
There is a matrix at the end of the tool to help you summarize the
results of the scorecard.
