Blending Conservation Design and the New Urbanism -- APA Webinar

This webinar sponsored by the Connecticut chapter of the American Planning Association describes the crossover between Conservation Design and the New Urbanism, showing how they can be blended. In areas served by public water and sewer, conservation design techniques can be readily combined with TND principles to create walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods, often involving infill projects and incremental growth around the community's outer edges.

This program shows how higher density neighborhoods can be designed around the central organizing principle of an open space network and incorporate distinctive features of the natural and cultural landscape, producing more sustainable results. This program is based largely on my last two books: Envisioning Better Communities and Crossroads, Hamlet, Village, Town. This webcast is sponsored by the Connecticut Chapter.
