Climate Action Visualizations

Climate Action Visualizations 

To better illustrate climate action and climate friendly neighborhoods - the City, along with the support of the Bullitt Foundation - developed a series of graphics to show what our neighborhoods might look like in the future if many of the recommendations of the plan involving land use and transportation were implememented.

The graphics on this page feature 3 separate neighborhood sections, both in present day form and what they might look like in the year 2035. The graphics are generic representations only - they are not meant to depict a specific neighborhood. The entire set of graphics, including descriptions of the specific changes, can be downloaded in a PDF here.

Visualizing Climate-Friendy Neighborhoods
(Imagery by Studio 216 / Design by GGLO)
Single Family Neighborhood - Present
Auto oriented, parking on both sides of the street .
Single Family Neighborhood - 2035
Fewer cars parked on the street, safer for pedestrians & cyclists. Large homes divided into 2 separate living spaces - inceasing the affordability. More trees and plants in planting strips, beautifying neighborhood and filtering stormwater.
Multi-Family Neighborhood - Present
Single story retail, still auto oriented. Some pedestrian activity. 
Multi-Family Neighborhood - 2035
Separated bicycle lanes make it safer for cyclists. Additional people living and working create enough demand for a grocery store. Mixed use retail replaces single story retail. School becomes community gathering space.
Neighborhood Business District - present
Currently features auto oriented businesses - drive thrus, etc.
Neighborhood Business District - 2035
More public transportation choices make it easier and faster to get around. Dedidated bicycle lanes, better pedestrian crossings.
