I found this article to be well thought out, and maybe more important than it seems at first glance. It refers to perception, which is certainly important when trying to convince people about concepts.
This is a fluff piece about “cool” places in the US. The criteria includes “not having to drive everywhere” which is important to me. It seems this article leans more towards visiting, than living in the cool place.
I’ve been to several of these cities, and they definitely are great places to visit. I particularly like Asheville, NC. I’ve never been to Port Angeles, WA and that’s pretty close to where I live now. I need to get there!
I hate having to drive everywhere I want to go. The grocery store, the drug store, post office, and especially work are all more than an hour walk away. There are no houses near enough to work such that one could walk to work, and to the store. The suburbs are not designed that way. In fact, they’re not designed at all.
Of course AARP would have a page for this…
This lists places where Form Based Codes are used.
Urban Planning for “form based” zoning.
Fairly interesting article about urban planning and walkability.
This Detroit area community is looking at reducing lanes on an interstate highway, to accommodate walkability. That is encouraging.
Yes, it’s climate change. No, it’s not “just weather.”
Quite a transformation.
