November-December 2013 Better! Cities and Towns
The cover story in the November-December 2013 issue of B!C&T is by George J. Proakis, Director of Planning for the City of Somerville, Massachusetts. Proakis discusses strategies for including project review in your city's form-based code process. You can also read an update from Robert Steuteville's trip to the Lean Urbanism summit in Detroit, and a report on the first new town to be created in Delaware in a century.
The CNU update includes the announcement that the Federal Highway Administration has told local DOTs to embrace the CNU/ITE manual for street design - a major breakthrough for the movement for streets that work for all users. CNU also announces a highly impressive jury for the 2014 CNU Charter Awards, and opens the call for New Urban Research for 2014.
