New Urbanism

Program Overview

New Urbanism is a planning and design movement based on the principles of how cities and towns had been built for the last several centuries. It involves the building of complete communities to create diverse, walkable, compact, and vibrant places to live, learn, work, and play. Communities are designed to help people make friends and enjoy a unique sense of place. Celebration is a traditional American town built anew. In the words of its master architect and planner Robert A. M. Stern, Celebration was “to recapture the idea of the traditional town, traditional in spirit, but modern in terms of what we know about how people live.”

Our Mission

Preserve, protect, and advance the New Urbanism principles upon which Celebration was founded.
