Smart Growth Keeps The Tribe Together

As incomes rise and public housing needs fall, the Winnebago tribe of Nebraska is planning a pedestrian-friendly village to keep members of the community on the reservation.

"Ho-Chunk Village, just north of town, is a mostly blank slate on which the tribe maps its destiny. A grid of chalk-colored streets is forming on a 38-acre slope of oat grass. Besides an office building and a new Dollar General store near the main road, there are 4 houses at the property's back edge, the first of 110 planned."
