Friends and readers and random Carrboro citizens who have stumbled upon this blog: I have read so many great planning and transportation articles lately. Transit mode choice research, real problems with the community input process, parking woes, social justice, and of course the ongoing coverage of the terrible flooding hitting Eastern North Carolina. I want to share them all with you.
Here’s how this is going to work: rather than dribble them out slowly over many weeks with painstaking summaries attached, I’m going to do a little round-up right here.
This is what [I think] you should be reading this week:
- Justice-Oriented Mobility Advocates to “Untokenize” Active Transportation Movement at November Convening (Streetsblog LA, 20 September 2016).
- Great Streets, Tactical Urbanism, and the Challenge of Flipping the Traditional Planning Process on its Head (Streetsblog LA, 9 July 2015).
- Injecting Social Justice into Local Government (Carolina Angles, 7 October 2016).
- Matthew’s Not Done Yet: Historic River Flooding On Its Way (WUNC, 9 October 2016).
How proximity to transportation options affects how you get around—and where you choose to live or work (TPB News, 11 October 2016).
There Will Never be “Enough” Parking (Streetsblog, 11 October 2016).
