Developers Form Institutes To Keep New Urbanist Ideals Alive

Seaside's New Institutes Program helps communities establish nonprofit organizations different from homeowners' associations.

"A fundamental premise of New Urbanism is that if streets, sidewalks, and other public and semipublic spaces are laid out properly, community life will tend to flourish. But a growing number of New Urbanists argue that it's not enough to get the physical design right. What's also needed is community institutions - particularly nonprofit organizations that will sponsor activities and enrich local life."
