Mission


As a peer-to-peer organization, The NTBA provides an unequaled opportunity to share information and insight with the nation’s premier Town Builders.

This give and take among equals in a collegial setting has proven to be the most efficient way to problem-solve, improve quality and energize the vision necessary to execute the very best of town building principles.

The NTBA is Town Builders learning from one another.

What We Believe:

We are town builders committed to the successful development of smart growth neighborhoods that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

We believe that it is important to support each other and future colleagues in creating communities of excellence that will serve as local and regional models of responsible development.

We wish to enhance the skills and meet the business needs of our members through peer networking and collaborative education.

We believe that in the development and redevelopment of America’s neighborhoods it is not only possible, but highly desirable, to do well by doing good. The pursuit of this goal requires continuous professional collaboration and leadership.
