ABOUT CNU MIDWEST

Our Mission

The American Midwest sits at the intersection of great places and great people. From the Great Lakes to the rivers, to the cornfields of Indiana and the foothills of Appalachia, the Midwest has consistently defined the heart of Americana. With its rich and human-scaled urban legacy, affordable cost of living, and access to critical resources, Midwestern cities and towns represent one of the greatest opportunities to pursue the next frontiers of the New Urbanism.

 

CNU Midwest is the regional chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) serving the states and cities that border the Ohio River and beyond—the nation's first corridor of westward expansion. Once the home of the industrial revolution, Midwestern towns and cities are well-positioned to grow in our current urban renaissance. As a leading voice in this renaissance, CNU Midwest is a diverse group of professionals dedicated to promoting the value that results from great placemaking through traditional and new approaches to:

 

  1. Reclaiming public space for people,

  2. Reactivating and reconnecting neighborhoods as the vibrant building block of towns and cities, and

  3. Championing urban development that is enduring, adaptable, and human-scaled.


The ultimate goal is the reimagining and repopulation of our urban cores and inner-ring neighborhoods. Starting at the level of the street and continuing up through the neighborhood, town, city, and region, we encourage the development of great, equitable, urban places where all people can enjoy all aspects of daily life.

"PEOPLE MAKE CITIES, AND IT IS TO THEM, NOT BUILDINGS THAT WE MUST FIT OUR PLANS."

-Jane Jacobs
