by Raul J. Cotilla, Cotilla Associates, Plainview, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Housing America in the Twenty-First Century


This paper presents a case study of a Master Plan for a neo-traditional Village on a tract of land of over 130 acres located in Northern New Jersey. It will focus on the design process followed to achieve what presented to the Township Planning Board for rezoning portions of the property. Cotilla Associates proposed a Village Zone in order to allow housing to be provided which would be more affordable to the local workforce. The plan envisions pedestrian friendly streets and bikepaths which would allow the new residents to enjoy the scenic beauty that the area has to offer. With flexible controls, the types of activities found in older villages, with their quaint shopping area can be provided.
