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

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


can increase population

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


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
