Are You Living the Charter?

Dateline: 8:56 am April 7, 2008 Filed under:

You may call yourself a new urbanist, but are you living the charter? Do you live within walking distance of neighborhood retail and services? Do you ever use transit? Is your neighborhood mixed-income? Perhaps you don’t even think of yourself as a new urbanist, but you are indeed one by virtue of your location and lifestyle.

A quiz created by several young CNU members was rolled out at the conference in Austin, designed to challenge assumptions and allow members to assess their choices. Click here to find out if you indeed are living the charter.

(I actually got a score of 96 of 100, losing out on four points because our local park is not within a five minute walk – it is 10 minutes away and has a playground, lake and trail connections to the entire park system!)
