New Urbanism Summit
(4.29) The Congress for New Urbanism New England (CNU) will be hosting the 2016 New Urbanism Summit at various locations around town. Since its birth in 1993, the CNU has advocated for walkable cities, human-scale development, and diverse, vibrant neighborhoods.
Today more than ever, people are voting with their feet for walkable, livable urban neighborhoods. But all too often, the ideas of developers trying to respond to that need run afoul of outdated regulations, cumbersome public process, and unimaginative public officials. And so this year, the New Urbanists of New England are focused on “Getting It Built: Connecting Ingenuity to Opportunity.”
Full schedule of walking tours, workshops, lectures: 8am to 7:30pm, Thursday, April 28/7:30am to 5:30pm, Friday April 29, closing party at Aurora.
Registration & breakfast at Aurora, 8am, Thursday, April 28, 276 Westminster Street
