CNU 23: Dallas/Fort Worth

CNU Transportation Summit 2014

CNU 23: Meeting the Demand for Walkable Places
April 29 - May 2, 2015 in Dallas / Fort Worth

The 23rd Annual Congress is coming to Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. The rich and diverse DFW region provides the perfect backdrop to explore the range of opportunities and challenges facing our members.

This year’s theme looks at the forces driving the desire for more urban lifestyles. In Dallas alone, 68% of residents "believe being able to walk or bike to destinations would be good for the local economy" yet the current market of walkable neighborhoods is only 3-5% in the Dallas/Fort Worth region.

Join us in DFW for CNU 23, April 29 – May 2, 2015 and network, learn and collaborate with the top real estate developers, architects, public officials, planners, architects and advocates working to make our cities better places.


The most interesting and vibrant Congresses are those that represent a range of voices, disciplines, and perspectives. We want to gather the best minds in urbanism, voices that represent diverse occupations, backgrounds, cultures, and genders.

That's why we're turning to you. Join us at and let us know who you want to hear and what topics you want to explore. Submit your own ideas, comment on others' submissions, and vote! Submissions with the most votes and support will make their way onto the CNU 23 program.

The submission window will close on September 10, 2014.


Partnership Opportunities

A diverse and growing metroplex, the DFW region provides a rich setting for engaging on the challenges and opportunities facing our members, their governments, and professions.

CNU 23 Partners will enable:

  • Hosting several local charrettes held throughout the region to help neighborhoods and residents move beyond dialogue to envisioning, designing, and building the community they want;
  • Helping local college and university students attend the Congress to facilitate their learning and the capacity building of our nation’s next generation;
  • Facilitating local government participation and networking so as to create a stronger, more vital region; and
  • Showcasing the unique design elements found throughout the DFW region.
As a CNU 23 Partner, you enable learning and conversation in the classroom, over tables, and on the street. You demonstrate your commitment to creating great and lasting neighborhoods and increase your exposure to industry leaders, government officials, and passionate stakeholders dedicated to placemaking.
