The News-Press reports (August 31):
[USA Weekend] wants to demonstrate the home in Falls Church to the public throughout the greater Washington, D.C., metro area and culminate the effort on October 28, on “Make a Difference Day,” when it will donate the home to a family in this area that has relocated from the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

The New Urban News (Jan./Feb.2006) stated in “New Urbanism makes inroads; still out of academic mainstream”: “Other design schools where at least some members of the faculty are receptive to New Urbanism include the Carnegie Mellon University, Judson College, University of Minnesota, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.” [Accessed 12.30’10 at http://newurbannetwork.com/article/new-urbanism-makes-inroads-still-out-academic-mainstream].
