In its planning and design, Morgan Crossing has kept in line with many of the principles of New Urbanism to create a modern village, the first of its kind in B.C. Village living has its roots in Europe, a time when there were no automobiles, and people travelled by foot from place to place. Luckily, the village was laid out in such a way that kept day-to-day needs close together. Historically, the basic plan consisted of a central forum with city services surrounded by a grid of streets, enclosed within a wall for security purposes. Streets were wide and laid out in patterns that reduced travel time between places while providing security, community and convenience.
