Gene Davis brings us this article from the Denver Daily News about the beginning of CNU 17. According to CNU spokesman Steve Filmanowicz, Denver will better weather this economic crisis because it’s embrace of New Urbanism allows it to better attract young urbanites as demographics continue to shift, and it will be more cost-effective and environmentally friendly for everyone involved. Denver is the only city to host CNU’s annual conference twice, and it’s multiple examples of New Urbanist developments (Larimer Square, Highlands’ Garden Village, Stapleton, Belmar and Prospect are cited in this article) are complimented by the fact that seven of the area’s 13 malls are being renovated into more walkable forms. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see more reports like this as CNU 17 continues.
