The community layout of NewVistas follows a city plot pattern created by Joseph Smith in June of 1833.  The plot was awarded the 1996 Planning Landmark Award by the American Planning Association in part for the high value it placed on the "quality of the urban environment and the importance of a coherent community." Important Note: The information on this webpage is presented for historical interest only. The NewVistas model is not presented as a fulfillment of Joseph Smith's vision. It is not supported or endorsed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons).
