Walking in America

I want to share a piece from BBC News’ special Altered States about getting people walking in US cities once more. 

The video does a great job of highlighting the problems with sprawl while also providing positive ideas (Matt Tomasulo: city hero) for change.  The city in question, Raleigh, North Carolina, has some serious infrastructure challenges to over come, especially in suburban areas. 

This video actually makes me feel optimistic about Regina’s chances for suburban retrofit.  Comparing our suburbs to featured areas of Raleigh, Regina neighbourhoods have a better foundation to build upon.

Check it out.
