Why Join CNU?
As people recognize the shortcomings of conventional growth patterns, New Urbanism offers a way to create enduring places of diversity and character. People are sending a clear message: they want vibrant and safe neighborhoods where it’s possible to walk to stores, work, schools, and places of worship. They want better housing and transportation choices and enjoyable public spaces. They want to feel proud of their communities.
New Urbanism turns these dreams into reality by offering new solutions for our built environment. It makes walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods the building blocks of towns, cities, and metropolitan regions. It adapts the principles and techniques of traditional city and town planning to improve today’s communities. It shows how social responsibility and environmental sensitivity can be good business.
