“By focusing development, New Urbanism promotes efficient use of infrastructure and preservation of habitats and farmland. With green building leaders, CNU is establishing new standards for green design at the neighborhood scale. Transportation plays a pivotal role in sustainability and in truly efficient transportation – walking, bicycling, and transit use – is only possible where there is compact, urban form.” ~ Congress for the New Urbanism
New Urbanism seeks to not only change the way we live, but improve how we live. The “Built to Last” video illustrates what we can do to make our communities walkable and desirable, with everything we need just a fee minute walk away. This video demonstrates how the New Urbanism design can help create a healthier and more beautiful community and planet.
