Twenty-five years after the founding of the Congress for the New Urbanism, the board voted this past September to advance our commitment toward creating a more inclusive movement and through it, more inclusive communities. In doing so, we affirmed the words espoused in the Charter of the New Urbanism:
“We represent a broad-based citizenry, composed of public and private sector leaders, community activists, and multidisciplinary professionals. We are committed to reestablishing the relationship between the art of building and the making of community, through citizen-based participatory planning and design.”
We are now committing ourselves to activate a collective understanding of what inclusion means for us, you, and the CNU. We admit that this is a journey for all of us. The anticipation of something new, something unknown, something unexplored rings to mind when I think of a journey.
