Our Chapter


The Atlanta chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism was founded in 2006 to promote new urbanism in the greater Atlanta region and provide educational, social, and professional events and services for its members. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the chapter strives to be a resource for trends in urbanism in both the greater Atlanta area and the state of Georgia. CNU members use the principles in CNU’s Charter to promote the hallmarks of New Urbanism.

The CNU Atlanta Chapter hosted the 18th Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU18) in Atlanta.
