CONGRESS FOR THE NEW URBANISM MICHIGAN CHAPTER
The Michigan CNU is the state chapter of The 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:
Established by co-founders Andres Duany, Peter Calthorpe, Elizabeth Moule, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Stefanos Polyzoides and Dan Solomon, and supported today by distinguished board members and other thought-leaders from the worlds of urban design, development, academia, citizen activism, and government policy, CNU works to deliver these hallmarks to communities across North America and overseas on multiple scales. Whether it be in brownfields, emerging growth areas, established cities, or small town suburbs, New Urbanism reinforces the character of existing areas in making them walkable, sustainable, and vibrant, revitalizing and energizing communities to their true potential. The principles of New Urbanism are also central to making whole regions more livable, coherent and sustainable.
With a history of forming productive alliances, CNU has been at the forefront of efforts to reform how we design and build communities and their infrastructure.
The Michigan chapter of CNUworks at the state level to promote CNU principles.
