Tenets of a New American Planning

  1. Our built environment is a reflection of our values.

  2. Treating housing as a "wealth-building" tool is a fundamental cause of why housing becomes unaffordable.

  3. Gentrification and wealth-building are two names for the same phenomenon.

  4. Zoning and historic districts are primarily value insurance for assets: single family homes.

  5. Land uses don't generate trips, but they may attract them.

  6. "Affordable" housing is a relative term.
