New Urbanist Tour
On Saturday, October 26th, CNU Midwest and APA Ohio would like to invite you to tour the 1,200 acre New Urbanist Development, Evans Farm, outside of Columbus, Ohio. AICP credit will be offered to those that attend. We will learn about the process, benefits and challenges of creating a cohesive and walkable community from the ground up. The Orange Township Zoning Director will talk about the project's journey through planning approvals.
There is no charge for this event, and we are celebrating the commencement of our Columbus CNU sub-chapter! This event is open to members and non-members from both inside and outside the Midwest region. Please RSVP and find additional information here if you plan on attending: https://members.cnu.org/
The event will take place from 12-3pm, followed by a reception. Evans Farm is entering into its second phase of development this fall:
"Evans Farm is Ohio’s only community designed around the principles of new urbanism, where shops, restaurants, parks, residential houses, and more are all within walking or biking distance of each other—so you can spend less time in rush hour and more time at happy hour."
Jocelyn Gibson, Chair CNU Midwest
