Thoughtful discussion of what is "complete"
 
What makes a complete street actually be complete?
Andrew Price challenges the definition of what makes a Complete Street 'Complete.'

Cool idea. What could possibly go wrong?
 
Great idea out of Tulsa where the "Dive Bar Town Hall" lets public speak their mind in a comfortable setting.
A "Dive Bar Town Hall" is to be formed so that citizens can voice their thoughts and opinions on a variety of subjects related to Tulsa.

"Specifically, he’s governor of a state that may not actually be governable."
Governor’s plan to save state’s pension fund runs into a cash crunch.

Hope this is not a trend. Lengthening the development  process, giving persons living miles away with little stake or familiarity an approval/veto and reducing land use to election slogans is not likely a good idea. Is the next step to vote on whether to allow affordable housing in a neighborhood? Do you vote yes for a bad project so that it gets built in someone else's neighborhood  and not yours?  
There's a reason why we don't normally put real estate projects on the ballot.

Interesting experiment by ASU and Starbucks, including the idea that , inclusivity, not exclusivity is important for colleges. Also, is college access the new perk to set a company apart now that employees have access to healthcare?

Good article on  the advantages of cities. The density advantage has to be done right though. And still not sure that Google car doesn't make living in low-density suburbs more attractive, i.e., the driving commute doesn't suck as much when you're kicked back watching a video or chatting on phone.
More and more, choosing to live outside a major city is tantamount to opting to live in the past.
