Based on the LI Index's findings, which recommendation is most vital to ensure economic development?

Streamline the process so multiple municipalities abide by the same or similar systems. Utilize technology (i.e. online payments, applications) in the building permit process. Provide a quicker process to help cut costs. Place less emphasis on on-site parking requirements. Promote "walkability." Update each municipality's comprehensive plan and zoning codes. Provide means to create more rental properties on LI. Place less emphasis on "density caps" and build what we need. Look at the big picture. Create a integrated plan that considers the needs of the community.
