New Urbanism Growing in St. Louis Region

Though it took some time to get going, New Urbanist projects in the sprawling metropolitan St. Louis are slowly densifying the area and lessening automobile-dependence. A St. Louis Post-Dispatch article discusses revitalization of downtown Belleville, Il and completed New Urbanist developments like St. Charles' New Town. In suburban Belleville a couple recently moved their business into a first-floor space on main street. They live above their business and can walk to a city park rather than having to maintain a typical suburban backyard.
