Atlanta (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
In effort to promote more livable, sustainable communities, AirSage® is awarding an annual Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) membership for every month during 2014. The goal is to help increase awareness of CNU and support the professionals interested in becoming more involved with the new urbanist movement.
CNU is a non-profit organization bringing together planners, developers, architects, engineers, public officials, investors and community activists through several initiatives that change the way we look at urban growth and development.
“As people recognize the shortcomings of conventional growth patterns, they are sending a clear message: they want vibrant and safe neighborhoods where it’s possible to walk to stores, work, schools, and places of worship,” says Tim Halbur, Communications Director at CNU. “With the help of AirSage, the Congress for New Urbanism is able to affect changes at the granular level, where we can reinforce the character of existing areas in making them walkable, sustainable, and vibrant, revitalizing and energizing communities to their true potential.”
As a pioneer in digital population analytics and the largest provider of consumer travel trends and population movement intelligence in the U.S., AirSage values the importance of smart urban planning and community development and how this impacts where and when people move. Supporting CNU, which promotes travel solutions for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transit—modes beyond just the automobile—allows AirSage to be part of the larger movement to create healthier, more walkable urban communities and conserve natural environments.
Today’s announcement of second quarter winners includes:
April: NORM MARSHALL—Co-Founder & Owner of Smart Mobility, Inc. in Norwich, Vermont
“CNU members are an extraordinary group of smart and dedicated people from a broad range of disciplines. I find the Annual Congresses and Transportation Summits to be high points in my professional year.”

“We have benefited greatly from CNU’s insights, skills and the generosity of its members. The CNU is an important part of our practice and purpose community; we hope we have been able to contribute in a small way with our own work as well.”
June: MICHAEL HOUSTON—Transportation Engineer with Transpo Group in Kirkland, Washington
“This membership with CNU will enable me to connect with other forward-thinking individuals who work towards more sustainable places for everyone to live, work, and play. The resources CNU provides showcase the benefits of transportation systems that use less energy and restore urban centers and towns.”
