WELCOME TO CNU MIDWEST
The Midwestern Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism
CNU-Midwest as an organization would not be able to continue our growth to promote better places across the region without your support. This month, we are asking that you consider making a donation to CNU-Midwest so we can continue to provide educational opportunities, events, and activities through the Midwest.
Because of your support, CNU Midwest has been able to:
+ Host our annual New Year New Urbanism event in Dayton Ohio
+ Create new compelling content with additional blogs by Midwest authors
+ Provide education opportunities across the entire region
+ Launch new initiatives including Midwest Change Makers
Over the next few months, our goal is to raise $1,000 to support CNU Midwest Initiatives in 2021 and beyond. CNU-Midwest is a not-for-profit that relies on donations.
For every $25 donated to CNU-Midwest in Fall 2020, $25 will be matched by a friend of New Urbanism.
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:
Reclaiming public space for people,
Reactivating and reconnecting neighborhoods as the vibrant building block of towns and cities, and
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.
