It’s actually remarkable that we still fall for the sales pitch that cars equal freedom. There’s nothing free about the lack of choice that comes from car dependancy. And building our city-regions around cars is the most costly thing we can do. Does that sound “free” to you?

It’s that time again. Thanksgiving traffic in the United States reminds us that we’re not stuck in traffic — we are traffic. And the only thing we’re really stuck in is the belief that we can’t make different choices. Via @DanLinden @abcnews

It’s not every day that a developer wants me to coach their team on urbanism, & critique their partially built inner city project so next phases can be better. Looking forward to workshopping with @greenstonehomes & city staff on @KendallYards in #Spokane Washington this week.
The heart of #Spokane’s @KendallYards neighbourhood is the new/evolving main street — walkable streetscape, generous patio seating, human scale. Next phase can have more housing above the street providing more eyes & “body heat.” People come from all over to enjoy the new street.
Every good new main street, & every walkable neighbourhood, needs at least one walkable urban grocery store. @KendallYards’s grocery store #MyFreshBasket is more than a store — it’s a community gathering place. #Spokane #completecommunities #thirdplace
