New Urbanism for the Wilds of Newport
A neighborhood is more than a collection of houses. It’s an interconnected network of homes, families, businesses, individuals, and green space all weaving into a living tapestry. The saying goes, “Measure twice, cut once,” and so we’ve put a lot of thought into our neighborhood. If you get the chance to visit, please do. Current and future features include:
The planned Village Center at the heart of the neighborhood, providing a variety of family-friendly gathering places. A coffee shop is currently under construction and is being built with two office spaces above that will be available for lease to small businesses. This is the people-magnet that will give Wilder a lively buzz.
Spacious parks invite the entire family outdoors for leisure and activity. A park for dogs allows these members of your family to run, play, socialize, and sniff to their heart’s content.
The main campus of Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) provides local residents easy access to life-long learning, including fully-accredited college courses, special Nursing and Aquarium Science Programs, and even a dance studio.
Bike and walking trails connect the Village Center to Mike Miller Park, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Hatfield Marine Science Center, The Port of Newport, South Beach State Park, and beyond.
A newly dedicated, professional-grade disc golf course that invites you to enjoy the scenic coastal forest that surrounds it, even as you try to avoid the trees while making your approach to the green.
New Urbanism Definition: New Urbanism is an urban design movement which promotes walkable neighborhoods containing a range of housing and job types. New Urbanism is strongly influenced by urban design standards that were prominent until the rise of the automobile in the mid-20th century; it encompasses principles such as traditional neighborhood design (TND) and transit-oriented development (TOD). It is also closely related to regionalism, environmentalism and the broader concept of smart growth.
