Here’s an eclectic mix of urban posts from the last few weeks!
* If the 1930s are any indication, in order to increase transit use and walkability we simply need to refer to adamant motorists as “old-fashioned” and “anti-progress”.
* And, speaking of the 1930s, check out this short film from 1939. It argues that sprawl is the answer. Now, 70 years later, I think we could all agree that it’s not the 1930s anymore.
* Seems like Copenhagen’s “Potato Rows” which blend the private and public realms nicely would be a great place to be a kid.
* This piece on neighbourhood associations killed me (in a great way)!
* A community association in Ottawa looking to the future but with it’s current residents in mind.
* Walkable DFW on lively cities vs. empty cities and how it relates to transportation.
* Libraries as neighbourhood anchors.
* Charles Marohn on resilience vs. growth.
