I use the book on a weekly basis to expand my understanding of the issues that confront my community. As a Op-Ed columnist for my local newspaper, the Charter book is a resource for understanding how New Urbanist thinkers address specific community building issues. For example: How the form and structure of neighborhoods contribute to the safety of children. How the placement of streets can reduce the amount of time and length of travel that families must make each day. How important the location and design of public squares, green spaces and civic buildings is to enhancing citizen involvement.
The Charter book is an important resource for anyone who shares a concern for the development and welfare of their community. Use it to learn to think about what's missing in your neighborhood. Use it to learn how to address local planning boards or commissions. Use it to plan for the location and social setting for a new residence, office or retail store. The Charter book will help you to gain an understanding of New Urbanism, which is becoming the most significant and comprehensive movement for the reform of cities and suburbs in the past half century. Anyone concerned with the future of their community should have The Charter of New Urbanism on their short list of must read books this year.
