 “Urbanism is not a four-letter-word”

Please join the California Central Coast Chapter (C4) of the U.S. Green Building Council in Ventura on Monday, July 23rd, at 5:30 PM, when Nick Deitch, one of the leading local architects engaged in preserving and revitalizing neighborhoods and centers of community, will lead an impassioned and engaging dialogue about why good urbanism is essential to our healthy and sustainable future.  The lecture will begin at 6:00 PM after a half hour of informal networking.
Using local project examples to illustrate the benefits of employing “Smart Growth” principles, Mr. Deitch will explore how concepts such as varied building form, a mix of uses, and development density can be employed to enhance community, sense of place, and quality of life.
