New Urbanism Audio: Kentlands, Biloxi

My new neighbor Justin Smith sent me a link to Weekend America's audio tour of Kentlands, in Gaithersburg MD, an early experiment in new urban design. The good news: it's clean and convenient. Most residents seem to like it a lot. The bad news: it's not good skateboarding territory.

It's followed by a story about rebuilding Biloxi, Mississippi, where the Congress for the New Urbanism just held a week-long new urbanist charrette. Some Biloxi residents seem to like what they see.

You have to scroll down to the second hour for the audio on both stories.
