New Brighton redevelops a former aggregate mine into a mixed-use community that embraces the principles of sustainability. An inter-connected grid of streets, mix of uses, variety of housing types/densities, and placement of amenities in proximity to homes were designed to encourage walking, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions. An urban farm provides an opportunity for the community’s residents to meet and socialize, and reinforces the importance of healthy choices. Low Impact Design features include vegetated bio-swales and water quality basins, including expanded median landscape areas, to provide natural filtration of urban runoff.
