Schenectady’s Stockade District is among the oldest neighborhoods in the USA with over 40 buildings older than 200 years. The Stockade district was established as a Dutch and Native American trading post in 1661 and is an inspiration to New Urbanists. The adjacent Schenectady downtown received a stunning, New Urbanist makeover in 2010.
The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is the leading national organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, economic sustainability and healthier living conditions, and CNU New York is our state chapter.
The Schenectady event will address a key topic in the Capital Region Economic Sustainability of our towns, villages, cities, and neighborhoods. We will also discuss planning in the 10 New York State Economic Regions. Our Regional Summt in Schenectady will also discuss CNU 22, the national meeting of the Congress for the New Urbanism in Buffalo in June 2014.
Expect a relaxed program with plenty of time for conversation, organizing and networking, featuring author and artist James Howard Kunstler on Friday evening; an introduction and refresher about what’s new in New Urbanism Saturday morning; and an intense discussion about regional development and sustainability issues on Saturday afternoon with local, regional, and national speakers and panelists.
