Public Squareeditor Robert Steuteville interviews Doug Farr, architect and urban designer with Farr Associates in Chicago and author of Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design With Nature, and Jessica Millman, an urban planner with Agora Group in Skaneateles, New York, who provides environmental services and is an expert in smart growth and green building standards, on the topic of sustainability and the New Urbanism.
