Course Title: Current Issues in New Urbanism

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: This six-hour course explains what new urbanism is and explores five current issues: equity planning, climate planning, how freeways impact neighborhoods, land use and zoning reform, and the creation of new neighborhoods. New urbanism is a design movement that intends to create more sustainable communities through the use of green space, transit-oriented design, and environmental justice.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to discuss the concept of environmental justice as it relates to the built environment, such as the placement of highways, energy facilities and other infrastructure.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to describe the unintended effects freeway expansion has on urban areas and explore opportunities to remove freeways from neighborhoods and promote transit-oriented development.

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to explain how zoning reform can benefit communities, such as repurposing commercial buildings into multi-family housing and increased density.

Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to evaluate the principles of climate planning, specifically the strategies behind mitigation planning and adaption planning.
