Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk on the Work of New Urbanists

A radio interview with New Urbanism co-founder Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk talks about remaking suburbia, and the new realities of development.

Plater-Zyberk reflects on the period when New Urbanists accomplished a great deal of work because housing development was running hot, and the results today.

In this radio interview, "Intersection 90.7's Mark Simpson talked with Plater-Zyberk about whether building entire new communities like Orlando's Baldwin Park or Kissimmee's Celebration is still realistic in today's economy."
