Community living at York Station : new urbanism principles applied to street design to create livable, sustainable communities Smith, Cameron Andrew

Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate that by using New Urbanist ideas one is able to design streets that will help create livable, sustainable communities, which are a viable alternative to suburban status quo developments. The effects of this type of development on three components of community (ie. social,economic and ecological) are studied. The New Urbanist development model is applied to the design of an historic railway infill site in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
