New Urbanism

“The Hidden Life of Garbage” got me thinking of a somewhat recent movement, “New Urbanism”.  In  his article, Rogers talks about the eventual separation of the Rural and The Urban areas. Right now,  in the more “progressive” neighborhoods of large cities, we are seeing the creations of Livable  Sustainable Communities. We are bringing the Rural back to the Urban. There are numerous parks,  farmer markets, farming gardens being created. Some of the key principals are minimizing the  environmental impact of development and its operations and the value of natural systems.
