Mark your calendars for the Seaside Prize weekend – January 28-29, 2011. This is always a great weekend of lectures and discussions about Seaside and New Urbanism, as well as receptions and dinners that offer a chance to see old friends and make some new ones. This year will be particularly interesting thanks to the large group of prominent New Urbanists that will take part in the forums. This year, the event also marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of Seaside. All are welcome, so sign up today on the Seaside Institute web page.
I really appreciate another mention of the Walking Tour in the Seaside Times, the great newspaper you can pick up in various locations around Central Square. It’s also available online.
Be sure and check out the front page article on Charlie Modica Sr., longtime proprietor of Modica Market and a beloved icon of the town who recently passed away.

It was a pleasure to give my tour of Seaside yesterday for a group from Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. Professor Amanda Rees of the Department of History and Geography brought a group of four to study Seaside, Rosemary Beach, and Alys Beach. Best of luck to the students on their project!
