The following senior project aims to propose a set of comprehensive development design guidelines for the downtown area of Parlier, California on Fresno St. These design guidelines will incorporate principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) to improve safety and encourage continued preservation of Parlier. According to the International Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design Association, “CPTED strategies aim to reduce victimization, deter offender decisions that precede criminal acts, and build a sense of community among inhabitants so they can gain territorial control of areas and reduce opportunities for crime and fear of crime,” (International CPTED Association, n.d.).
