The National Town Builders’ Association was organized to serve builders and developers throughout the nation in an effort to build the very best traditional neighborhoods and town centers.

We are Town Builders learning from one another.

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.

What We Believe

We Are
town builders committed to the successful development of traditional neighborhoods that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
We Believe
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 Endeavor
to enhance the skills of our members through peer networking and collaborative education, and meet their business needs by distributing the most useful implementation practices.
We Embrace
the idea that in the development and redevelopment of America’s neighborhoods it is not only possible but highly desirable to do well by doing good. Achieving this goal requires continuous professional collaboration and leadership.

Intricate mingling of different uses in cities are not a form of chaos. On the contrary, they represent a complex and highly developed form of order.
