UnSprawl Case Study: Agritopia in Gilbert, Arizona
Located in the rapidly developing town of Gilbert, Arizona, Agritopia is the Phoenix area's first traditional neighborhood development and among the nation's first mixed-used communities to integrate working agriculture. Rather than similar principles of New Urbanism, however, the 166-acre community built on the last undeveloped portion of the Johnston family farm is based on a set of Christian foundational principles and subsequent derived principles that range from promoting a simpler life to honoring agriculture. Indeed, Agritopia could be called evangelical New Ruralism."
