New Urbanism Arrives At Ozarks

Three new developments in the Ozarks will be based on New Urbanist principles.

"Taney County developer John Epps said he planned his latest project, Cross Creek, using the principles of New Urbansim he discovered on the Internet while looking for architectural styles that would set his project apart.
'We have a whole new opportunity with baby boomers retiring,' Hagerman said. 'They're looking for an alternative to their traditional house in the suburbs or grand houses on the estate. They want the same quality of life they've worked hard to earn, but they want a supportive community where they can shop, exercise, recreate and have a medical facility, and they want it in a community, and those are powerful forces driving this in-fill approach.' "
