The Chatter

From the Chalk Art Festival in Sarasota (TheWonderous)

For too long, we over-invested in the wrong places. Those retail centers and subdivisions will never be worth what they cost to build. We have to stop throwing good money after bad. It is time to instead build what the market wants: mixed-income, walkable cities and suburbs that will support the knowledge economy, promote environmental sustainability and create jobs.”

The Retweet

  • RTstevemouzon Economics, urban planning & ecology are only the means. Happiness is the goal. ~Enrique Penalosa
  • RT Fred_Kent You can’t let a good recession go to waste…let the creative juices flow.
  • RT jamesschwartz The Model T got 28.5 mpg, in 2007 the avg got 24.7 mpg. (#carjacked by @lutzfernandez)
  • RT DrMatthewSweet Driving your children to school is not a luxury but a necessity? In urban areas it ought to be an absurdity.
