I would love a New Urbanist town center in the City of Alcoa. I really like the Northshore Town Center. We can only hope they do not destroy the vibe and beauty of the Alcoa community during this process.

Eight lane road

Your link states that this development is contingent on an 8 lane road going through, amirite? Question 1: who profits from this road?

Isn't the whole point of new urbanism that you walk to work and to the store? decrease the need for driving? Besides, have these people never heard of traffic calming?

First phase of the 8 lane road

People wanting to quickly pass through Alcoa and all the new businesses that can appear at new interchanges and newly opened land.

They are behind the times.
