The Charolotte Observer talks to five Charlotte-area land-development professionals about New Urbanism -- and why Charlotte residents should recognize New Urbanism and care about it.
"New Urbanism is the term for types of residential, commercial and mixed-use development that learn from the ways Americans built towns and cities from the 17th century to the 1940s."
