New urbanism

Today I saw John norquist, president of the congress of new urbanism
speak. It was motivational andante encouraging learning experience.
He really touched on planning isues we see daily and the innovations
that are happening in the urban planning field!
Ideas on no parking, no set backs, design based zoning so we can have
mixed use density which then leads to a complex neighborhood or ex:
elmwood village. We don't make stuff like that anymore and it's so
sad. But John is changing those things and so are many other leaders
and I hope to be one of them!!!
