Congress for the New Urbanism

Congress for the New Urbanism LogoThe Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is 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.
