    Hello all,

    I am looking for any municipality or private company that has been involved in embedding Safe Growth and the principles of CPTED in municipal Development Plans, Zoning Bylaws, or other municipal policy (like Park Development Guidelines, Landscaping Guidelines, Lighting Policy, etc.)

    I have seen the Zoning bylaws from Florida.  I am particularly interested in Canadian examples as that is the world I work in, although I would like to see all examples out there.

    If you know of anything, please point me in the right direction or email me.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Elizabeth; Greetings for you. Regarding your question I would like to mention three municipalities in Chile,South America ICA Chapted, were CPTED methodology is becoming part of local urban regulations and management. CPTED is new to many municipalities in Chile, therefore, the first step is to work in pilot pojects, looking forward to integrate the experience and learning into local urban guidelines. 1.- Municipality of Barnechea. On 2004 in parnership with the Universidad del Desarrollo, a local University, a course in reaserch was taught in CPTED methodology. On 2005 a CPTED expert worked on the remodeling and improvement of a local school. On 2008 Munucipality architects are undertaking the remodeling of Plaza Santa Rosa, an important public space, using CPTED Methodology. 2.- Municipality of Puente Alto. With the help of chilean CPTED experts developed an intervention plan for low income communities, working issues such as the perception of fear, and community empowerment. The municipality later developed a CPTED guideline for landscaping and lighting. 3.- Municipality of Lo Prado. Two significant projects for the community were developed using CPTED methodology. THe first project was an sport complex in a vacant lot were crime and drug dealing were an every day fact. A park and comunity center are in developement today, expecting building bye the end of 2008 All the municipalityes are evaluating the projects and planning the use of CPTED in a more intensive way in the near future. For more information contact Municipality of Barnechea Paulina Castillo F. pcastillo@lobarnecha.cl Municipality of Lo Prado.

    I can suggest three useful European organisations which do a great deal of public consultation in planning of public infrastructure and also do post-occupancy evaluations.

    It should be possible to find them all through most common internet search engines

    1. Commission for Architecture and Built Environment (C.A.B.E)

    2. Bernard Van Leer Foundation, they have a document on website called "Can You Hear Me ?" which is about the importance and practicalities of consulting children about these issues.

    3. Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

    Hope that helps.

    The Queensland Police Service, in Australia (which is like a state or provincial force in USA or Canada) did a lot of work to develop a set of CPTED guidelines for designers and planners and had managed to get these incorporated into the state government planning regulations. I suggest that you contact either Tony Lake or Rick Draper as they would be more current on state of play than I am since I left the police in 2006. We did quite a bit of work with local government via a state government program called SIP Security Improvement Program, which required any new public infrastructure or recreational facility to comply with CPTED principles in order to access funding. You might also look at Brisbane City Council website to see if their public safety unit still has any stuff of use to you.  If you just want a chat about the Australian stuff drop me an email.

    CPTED principles are used at the City of Windsor.  It is mentioned in our Official plan and is used during the site review process.  Windsor Police Service provides the CPTED comments during the site review process.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Contact the City of Red Deer, Alberta.  Specifically, Colleen Jensen, Director of Community Services.  She recently presented at the CPTED conference in Calgary on The importance of CPTED and its relation to Land Use & Bylaws and what Red Deer has done to clean up their community.

    Thanks
