Lisa: New Urbanism

How did I not know about New Urbanism before? Also known as Traditional Neighborhood Design, this is about the rockin'est idea ever. "Small town" neighborhoods, with schools, shops, and churches within walking distance. Narrower streets, slower traffic, pedestrian-friendly design, and garages out of sight behind houses. What's not to love? If you want to spend all day looking at New Urbanism websites (just like me!), here's a few links to get you started:

The Thirteen Points
Congress for the New Urbanism
Meeting Street Homes - a commercial site, but with lots of pictures and info.

Update: Utterly failed to convince husband and father-in-law of the awesomeness of New Urbanism. Apparently not everyone wants to be part of a community.
