   Zoning bylaw regulates lot sizes, building
heights and another specific requirement.

 

Different areas have
different zoning bylaw. Even the official plan follows Provincial

 

Policy statement, the new

 standard. In the Town of Newmarket map 4, R1D
building maximum height is

 

10.7m (2 storey) according

whether or not to provide
each tree with the appropriate volume of high-quality soil in

1.    Compare
the values of The New Urbanism and traditional planning, and identify and
discuss the impacts each planning system has on built form. 

 

 

      In the ancient, cities were developed by simple
planning theory, and the city was

 

designed based on the subjective
consciousness, people just cared short-term benefit

 

when people design their
cities.. Most of the time, traditional planning didn’t have a

 

good future plan, and
traditional planning often make some decision based on the

 

History event. The
traditional planning has 4 examples which are Ancient Greeks,

 

Romans, Dark Middle Ages,
and suburb spreading.

 

 

   Ancient Greece developed rectangular blocks
of residential land use for the sun

 

exposure. The population of
Greece is not large, so the city scale is small (“ANCIEDNT

 

GREECE”, 22 December 2017). These situations cause city lacking independence

 

Region, and the residential
district don’t have a hierarchy among rich people and

 

poor people. Greeks don’t
have an actual plan to plan their city, but Greeks try to get a

 

 balance between the city and nature. The
marketplace is also called Agra which is in

 

the public space (Dyk, 2015).

 

 

   Romans want to show political and military
power by designing the street layout.

 

 Roman cities had north and west major streets,
which intersected at the center.

 

Roman defends the enemy
attack by designing cities walls and streets (Dyk, 2015).

 

The Roman square is A public
space, and dominator can announce some information

 

for residents in the Roman
square (Roman empire, 2017 December 21).

 

 

 

 

 

   In the Dark and middle ages, religion-church
becomes the framers and the executors,

 

which controls social
development, so social was chaos. People lack

 

settlements or shelter (Dark
age, 2017 December 29).

 

 

   After the second war, some Americans would
like the move to the suburb because of

 

Privacy and security, so a
lot of land are not proper utilized. In the suburb,

 

Most residential buildings
are single detached residential buildings (Urban sprawl, 2018 January 1)

 

 

    New Urbanism has more complex and advanced
thinking than traditional planning

 

 ,because New Urbanism not only focuses on the
short-term benefit. New Urbanism

 

theory wants to make the
sure balanced development of the city. New Urbanism has

 

Some factors, including
walkability, connectively, mixed housing, density increasing,

 

sustainability. The new
Urbanism city will have more apartments because apartments

 

can increase population
density by accommodating more people. Joe Mincozzi thought

 

blindly urban sprawl is not
necessary (Mincozzi, 2016). Even suburbs have
commercial

 

buildings, commercial
buildings which are in the suburbs create very low economic

 

value when comparing with
commercial building in the downtown. Joe Mincozzi

 

explained this phenomenon by
comparing Asheville Walmart and downtown building

 

economic value. Economic
value includes retail taxes, job number and property taxes

 

(Mincozzi, 2016). Joe Mincozzi
wants to indicate new Urbanism use is very

necessary for the city, and traditional
planning which causes suburb expanding is not a

good plan for the human development in the
future.
