Friday, January 29, 2016 - 10:00am
Our board has been asked by the City of Oxnard to host our annual By-Design Charrette at the end of this month. Please see the information attached as our volunteer charrette team welcomes any CNU-California member assistance during our 5-day charrette. This year, we are pleased to introduce the 2015 New Urbanism Film Festival highlights as a public dialog tool to frame from the beginning the value of mixed-use, walkable new urbanism built in other places. 
Please send an email to info@cnucalifornia if you are interested in participating and volunteering and we will send more information.
