New urbanism creates relatively dense, impervious development and has been shown to incur greater environmental impacts than comparable development types, particularly in regard to water quality. This thesis examines a case study new urbanist development. An alternative landscape design is proposed that seeks to implement ecologically-sound stormwater manage-ment practices within the prescribed layout of the development’s buildings and streets.
