Laurie Volk, Seth Harry, Mike Lydon, and Ashleigh Walton joined CNU CEO Lynn Richards to address the enduring power of urbanism to create community. New Urbanism has always been about creating people centered places that are socially just, economically robust, and environmentally resilient. With social distancing at the forefront of attempts to contain the spread of COVID-19, many are wondering if dense, urban living will come under scrutiny and result in a pattern of city-dwellers fleeing for suburban havens once again. Yet others have noted the importance of walkable urbanism in easing the transition to social distancing and traditional neighborhoods supporting a feeling of connectedness in the face of unprecedented solitude.
