The Seaside development in South Walton County, Florida has been one of the higher profile new urban projects over the years. Master-planned by Andres Duany and the DPZ firm, the project has been featured in numerous magazines, case studies, and even as the set for Jim Carrey's The Truman Show.
In addition to being a fascinating place to visit and explore, the founders had the foresight early on to set up a non-profit organization to advance the land use principles that Seaside represents.
Known as "The Seaside Institute", the organization recently came under the leadership of an excellent new Executive Director and has published a new website with many interesting New Urban land use resources.
