The Urban EcoBlock provides an equitable, ecological framework for rebuilding our inner cities at the block level, where economies of scale reduce costs while providing a catalyst for community revitalization. Utilizing a Form-Based Code and Community Land Trusts, our goal is to create a mixed-use block for mix-income residents that creates a new paradigm for urban living.

In short, our mission is to re-imagine the urban block as an ecological, social, and economic unit to facilitate equity, efficiency, and democracy.
