The success of the movement towards New Urbanism in the USA is partly a result of "suburbanites" calling for a greater sense of community and convenience in their lives, reflecting on traditional values. Recently the focus of leading edge planning has been to shift from reinventing America's downtowns to a focus on the suburban strips, and residential neignborhoods. In most cases, I have witnessed firsthand the success of such developments that tend to create the sense of place and diversify in the character of the architecture and spaces that they create. In my opinion it has been a good thing for the sustainable growth movement and hope it continues to nourish and thrive on itself. I suppose we are somewhat all traditionalists in our own, going back to our roots, past experiences, images ingrained and upbringing.
