THE MARCH 12 EVENT:
Please join us in a special field trip to tour Charlotte’s premier new mixed-density neighborhood Brightwalk as hosts Emma Littlejohn of The Littlejohn Group, Richard Petersheim of Land Design, Joshua Riley and Ryan Strait of CalAtlantic Homes, David L. Howard of the City of Charlotte, greet and host a tour and discussion.

An introduction and walking tour of Brightwalk.  Along the way observe and discuss how:

  • small scale design and development is ideal for the new economy and evolving trends in community lifestyle,
  • human-scale proportion and getting the details right foster interaction among its residents,
  • a holistic vision promotes community resilience and serves as a viable infill strategy
  • livable streets are arranged in compact, walkable blocks
  • line-grain mixed-density with a range of housing choices serve people of diverse ages and income levels,
  • schools, stores and other nearby destinations are reachable by walking, bicycling or transit service,
  • an affirming, human-scaled public realm where appropriately designed buildings define and enliven streets
  • and other public spaces, and an environmental art master plan addresses green space opportunities which restore and preserve the community’s natural resources.
