Summary

The basic strategy of New Urbanism is to apply the techniques of Traditional Neighborhood Development--mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly communities--to urban and suburban growth. This was the dominant pattern of settlement in the United States until the 1950s and remains the dominant pattern elsewhere in the world. It is sustainable and environmentally sound. Suburban sprawl, which evolved after World War II, in contrast, is not a healthy growth system. It does not pay for itself financially; it consumes land at an alarming rate; it produces transportation problems and promotes social inequity. Smart Growth Manual clearly shows how to apply TND guidelines to revitalize American cities and towns.
