dc.description.abstractNew Urbanism is a comprehensive town planning approach that combats sprawl by planning towns based on traditional town planning methods. The Charter of the New Urbanism lists several principles based on historic preservation and revitalization, however numerous historic towns are in need of revitalization and are being overlooked while greenfield communities are being planned on the metropolitan fringe. The principles of New Urbanism need to be applied to historic communities; by adaptively reusing extant structures and only adding new development when needed the historic integrity and sense of place found in many historic communities would continue on.
