traditional neighborhood development
Living Life on a Human Scale
Celadon is a classic example of what urban planners call a “TND.” The acronym TND stands for Traditional Neighborhood Development, a comprehensive planning philosophy that includes a variety of housing types and land uses in a defined area.
The variety of uses permits educational facilities, civic buildings, and commercial establishments to be located within walking distance of private homes. These highly desirable communities are served by a network of paths, streets, and lanes suitable for pedestrians as well as vehicles. This provides residents the option of walking, biking, or driving to places within their neighborhood. Public and private spaces have equal importance, creating a balanced community that serves a wide range of home and business owners. The inclusion of civic buildings and civic space, often in the form of plazas, greens, parks, and squares, enhances community identity and value.
The point of a TND is to create a residential experience on a human scale, where residents have easy access to daily activities (from picking up the mail to visiting the gym) and public spaces for communal interaction.
