dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to determine the level of diversity created in a New Urbanist neighborhood compared to a standard suburban sprawl neighborhood in the bedroom community of Kyle, Texas. The goal is to define how diversity can be fostered or suppressed at both the micro-level in terms of community form, and at the macro-level in terms of resident interaction within the city as a whole. Rapid population growth challenges Kyle’s ability to create unique and diverse places for residents. Kyle’s New Urbanist community, Plum Creek, is creating a new design for urban planning in the region, but can it truly achieve the level of diversity outlined in the Charter of New Urbanism? This research examines the successes and failures of two neighborhood’s ability to intertwine everyday lifestyles, work, recreation and diversity into a meaningful community. Furthermore, it emphasizes that measures of diversity are strongly dependent upon the larger spatial scope of the urban context.en_US
