Thought this was a very compelling master plan that will be implemented in our nations capital which is extremely important because it puts on the national stage changing city dynamics, more inclusive design, inter-connectivity of different areas, the rise of the sustainable movement, and more importantly the prominence of the New Urbanism movement. This packet is from January of 2013 and is a fabulous blueprint for future developments around the nation including Houston. Of course, even though we don't really have zoning or vast urban planning infrastructures, we are moving into a more planned direction for the city (case in point the Houston General plan). Of course the no zoning I think we should continue to embrace, but we should be the ones that guide it through via smart and thoughtful design and frameworks (such as infrastructure, and possible incentive programs). http://www.ncpc.gov/plans/swecodistrict.pdf
