RESEARCH BANNER

Research

As they become popular places to live and visit, GNAR communities tend to experience a variety of interconnected planning, transportation, economic, community development, and sustainability issues. These challenges range from shortages of affordable workforce housing and significant congestion and transportation concerns to questions about how to protect open spaces and dark skies. GNAR communities that have not yet “been discovered” often face a variety of other concerns, such as issues associated with limited economic opportunities. The GNAR Initiative acts as an intellectual incubator to foster and support multi-university and trans-disciplinary research aimed at better documenting and holistically understanding the opportunities and challenges in GNAR communities. It also develops, helps implement, and studies evidence-based strategies for helping western GNAR communities thrive amid change.
