Community Design Review
New Community Design (NCD) offers a distinct alternative to the developmental "sprawl" that has dominated real estate growth over the last 50 years. NCD principles can be used to create vibrant neighborhoods of housing, parks, and schools within walking distance of shops, civic services, jobs, and transit - in short, a modern version of the traditional American town of times past.
