8 pagesDate: April 9, 2024


The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked discussions on urban planning strategies to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases in densely populated areas. Compact development, characterized by higher density, mixed land use, and walkable neighborhoods, has emerged as a potential response to pandemics like COVID-19. This study investigates public perception of compact development as a strategy for pandemic resilience. Through a mixed-methods approach, including surveys and focus group discussions, we explore attitudes, preferences, and concerns regarding compact development in the context of public health crises. Our findings reveal nuanced perceptions, with factors such as urban design, access to green spaces, and community amenities influencing acceptance and support for compact development. Additionally, we examine the role of communication strategies, stakeholder engagement, and trust in government agencies in shaping public opinion. The study underscores the importance of integrating public input into urban planning decisions and highlights the potential of compact development as a sustainable and resilient approach to pandemic preparedness.
