  • Seabrook’s inspiration? The township of Seaside, FL. See the article by Nathan Norris, Seaside is a model of ideas worth spreading. Seabrook’s Director of Town Planning | Landscape Designer, Stephen Poulakos, says, “We’ve used nearly all the town building techniques listed in the article to design and develop Seabrook.”
  • Many years ago, pre-Seabrook land had been clear-cut three times, which created a poorly managed forest that was crowded, unhealthy, and lacked biodiversity. Even the staunchest environmentalists were supportive of the Seabrook approach and the plan to bring back native vegetation. Today, this walk-able, dense town is a healthy environmental model with sustainable parks, trails, and vegetation to last generations.
  • Seabrook’s name was derived from the multiple creeks and brooks that lead out to sea.
  • Seabrook was almost named Salmonberry Beach after the native plant (in the rose family), which blooms springtime. Watch for berries later this summer! Salmonberry − ‘Rubus spectabilis’.
  • Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) defines New Urbanism as a planning and development approach based on the principles of how cities and towns had been built for the last several centuries: walkable blocks and streets, housing and shopping in close proximity, and accessible public spaces. In other words: New Urbanism focuses on human-scaled urban design.
  • Streets in Seabrook were designed to create chaos for drivers because pedestrians come first. Driving should always be slow and cautious. “The number one traffic-calming town design is good architecture.” As an example, see the beauty and detail of the Meriwether Pavilion roundabout. Drivers are more apt to slow down.
  • Porches in Seabrook are near sidewalks and pathways to foster neighborly communications and actions.
  • 60% of the homes in Seabrook face something other than streets (ocean, parks, promenades, pastures, natural preservation green spaces, etc.).
  • Seabrook was built using sustainable materials that patina − get better with age.
  • Seabrook was developed using Deflected Vistas and Terminating Vistas. A Deflected Vista is two viewpoints of visual interest at key points that ‘speak’ to a view beyond the deflection. A Terminating Vista is a single viewpoint added to provide aesthetic appeal to a town and emphasize important structures or monuments. The Pacific Ocean and Town Hall are two of several Terminating Vistas in Seabrook.
