Why Smart Growth Needs New Urbanism And Vice-Versa
There are many reasons why "movements" fail. Usually they become insignificant rather than disappear. Rarely do two different movements emerge at roughly the same time and share similar broad goals. Considering the many difficulties of achieving widespread success of any movement affecting American society, the worst scenario is competition or outright confrontation between two such movements. Though smart growth and new urbanism have different origins, constituencies, and tactics, it is critical to identify how they complement each other and how they can reinforce each other, writes Joel S. Hirschhorn in this week's Planetizen Op-Ed.
