"Although the concept of New Urbanism (Duany coined the term) has been around for some time (called, variously, conservation development and traditional neighborhood development), DPZ's Seaside, Fla., development generally is considered the first true New Urbanist development. Opened in 1981 on a white sand stretch of beach between Panama City and Destin, Seaside was intended to be a town unto itself, with high-density homes, restaurants, a grocery store, a post office and a few retail establishments. DPZ's intention was that people would drive to Seaside for their summer vacations and then abandon their cars until the day they had to head home."

Thanks to Congress on New Urbanism
