Last night one of my favorite bands graced us with their music at the CNU Dinner.
To anyone interested in the first Students for New Urbanism Conference:
This post is to notify you about the first Students for New Urbanism Congress
to be held this October at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.
During the Florida CNU, a lengthy discussion was started on the issues that we face with regional planning in Florida. The regional planning process in Florida is very complicated, and many times the vision is never developed beyond policy. Regional Planning Councils around the State are working hard to develop plans, private developers are creating plans, and local municipalities are creating visions for their growth. All of these plans includes visions and policies that over lap city and county boundaries. Many of these policies are never illustrated, and the vision is left to the imagination of the next planning session. Amazingly enough, when a plan is drawn, these plans are rarely placed on a State wide map with adjoining regional and city plans, or compared to regional transportation or water management needs.
