WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT?
Traditional Neighborhood Development (also called Neo-traditional  Development or Urban Village Development or simply "TND") revisits many features of urban neighborhoods developed before World War II, the single most distinguishing feature of which is the continuous fabric of intimately blended and mixed land uses arranged so that travel between them can be made by a variety of methods in addition to the usual private automobile.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A TRADITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT?
Think of it as having a neighborhood as comfortable as your own finely appointed home. Traditional Neighborhood Development delivers people-oriented design that assures public spaces, such as parks, plazas, civic buildings, and even streets get as much attention as private spaces. It's an approach that designs in community from the beginning, increasing the value of every homeowner's investment as each new family joins the neighborhood and enriches the mix.
