CNU X Program
CNU X (Miami Beach, 2002) concentrated on the pressing issue of retrofitting post-war suburbia, and attempted to articulate strategies for the hundreds of first ring suburbs seeking walkable, urbane downtowns. The Congress featured an opening keynote speech entitled "The Suburban Challenge" and break-out sessions including "Suburbs to Cities: Adapting to Change," "The Place for Suburbs: Where should new development go?" "Redesigning the Suburban 'Strip' Corridor," and "Suburbs: From Adolescents to Cities." New Urbanism 101 was brought back for a second Congress after an enthusiastic reception at both CNU IX and Rail~Volution 2001. Other features included a series of in-depth sessions for seasoned practitioners and a frank analysis of the movement's successes, failures, and future.
