Congress for the New Urbanism

The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is the leading organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, sustainable communities and healthier living conditions. For nearly twenty years, CNU members have used the principles in CNU's Charter to promote the hallmarks of New Urbanism, including: - Livable streets arranged in compact, walkable blocks. - A range of housing choices to serve people of diverse ages and income levels. - Schools, stores and other nearby destinations reachable by walking, bicycling or transit service. - An affirming, human-scaled public realm where appropriately designed buildings define and enliven streets and other public spaces. For more information, visit our website at www.CNU.org

Highways to Boulevards: Network-Based Solutions

Kimberly R. Dresdner, AICP

I've attended most of the Highways to Boulevards sessions and this one was exceptional. Eric Dumbaugh gave lots of practical and useful information to help build a case for highway removal what going up against traffic engineers. I gave this session 4 stars because of a few sound issues at the very beginning and very end of the session.

Scale Down & Design For People, With People

Bruce F. Donnelly, AICP

The content was quite good, but the presentations (including my own) were a bit "off" as the moderator managed to distract the speakers by flashing hand signals in our peripheral vision. However, I was able to refer people to my blog for a better/fuller/un-distracted discussion, and fielded several questions on it. That said, I particularly liked the emphasis on small, as it goes with Lean Urbanism.
