Urbanisms Pivot Point: A Must Read Article!

This article is a MUST READ on where CNU is pushing and heading for the future.
Urbanists and planners now are saying that we should not allow any removal of existing building stock and should push to re energize our existing cities!

The Congress for the New Urbanism views disinvestment in central cities, the spread of placeless sprawl, increasing separation by race and income, environmental deterioration, loss of agricultural lands and wilderness, and the erosion of society’s built heritage as one interrelated community-building challenge.

The article also suggests buying this book. I know I will be picking it up this week.
