Smart growth to revitalize urban centers
Building on the urban revitalization theme (and unable to resist playing off the title of biodiversivist’s post earlier), Smart Growth Online is a great resource for issues relating to the development of green, livable, and desirable communities (without, of course, being too overbearing and centrally planned). Sharing many principles with New Urbanism itself (walkability, mixed use, transportation-centered development, etc.), it’s definitely a good idea. I’m planning to get more familiar with some of their publications very soon, but for now I’ll just post the link.
