As discussed yesterday, the proposed development for Pittsfield Twp. will
apparently be designed using an approach called "New Urbanism." According
to the Ann Arbor News article, this is a "modern, yet retro design approach"
whose "goal is to capture the spirit of neighborhoods before the
proliferation of car-focused subdivisions after World War II."
This certainly sounds in theory like a smarter approach to growth.
