New Urbanism
(New Urbanist; New Urban)

A planning philosophy that balances various housing types (e.g., rental and privately owned, single and multi-family), public spaces and services(e.g., parks, schools, retail), and community interaction, such that aspects of the designed environment (e.g., walkable streetscapes, shared green space) intentionally foster an overall sense of community .
