Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU)


The leading organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, sustainable communities and healthier living conditions.

For over twenty years, CNU members have used the principles in CNU's Charter to promote the hallmarks of New Urbanism, including:

Livable streets arranged in compact, walkable blocks.
A range of housing choices to serve people of diverse ages and income levels.
Schools, stores and other nearby destinations reachable by walking, bicycling or transit service.
An affirming, human-scaled public realm where appropriately designed buildings define and enliven streets and other public spaces.
