Claude Lewenz detailed his concept for Village Towns in this book, first published in 2007.

  Claude Lewenz believes he’s developed a better idea for a 21st century city, one that is now gaining attention in Mendocino County.  He calls it a “village town,” and explained it in this archival North Bay Report from October, 2010.

The Village Town concept is a fresh start, as Claude Lewenz envisions it, a community built completely new and separate from what has gone before

  Designing the individual villages will be left up to the people who will live in them, Lewenz explains. He offers an outline of how that might happen.
