New Urbanism is the core design philosophy of New Town, Williamsburg, VA. This international movement seeks to create a more sustainable building approach by balancing homes, jobs, and the preservation of meaningful open spaces on a more human scale. No big boxes, no mega-malls, just what we need for great living, where we need it.

The CNU’s Charter of the New Urbanism says:

We advocate the restructuring of public policy and development practices to support the following principles: neighborhoods should be diverse in use and population; communities should be designed for the pedestrian and transit as well as the car; cities and towns should be shaped by physically defined and universally accessible public spaces and community institutions; urban places should be framed by architecture and landscape design that celebrate local history, climate, ecology, and building practice.

Founded nearly thirty years ago by forward thinking planners and architects, New Urbanism has found national and international successes and is no longer considered Utopian theory about how we can live.

In the last two decades, amazing places like Seaside and Celebration, Florida,Stapleton Colorado, Kentlands, Maryland, and Harbor Town, Tennessee, have seen the return of not only community, but of sustainable value. Kids are safely outdoors more, neighbors know each other better, everyone cares more about the community in which they live.

What’s more, these communities are showing that higher densities with meaningful green spaces create a lasting value, both financially and socially.

New Urbanism seeks to provide transportation alternatives while creating positive places. By reducing automobile dependence and providing mobility choices, places like New Town, Williamsburg, VA can reduce the cost of living and the cost of commuting at the same time.

I encourage you to learn more about the New Urbanism by visiting the Congress for the New Urbanism at www.cnu.org.
