Weekly Chatter

Bits of news, perspective, and what-not from the wider or the local world.

  • Splash pads are really unpopular, but FYI–Clinch Park is open and raining (RE) And to paraphrase a friend, I’ve never seen so many people mingling about Clinch Park and the water wasn’t even on yet. 

When you take a thousand cars off the highway and put them in a parking lot, it decreases the delay on the highway, decreasing the cost. And because demand for that highway was relatively elastic, it increases the number of trips on that highway back to the sweet spot – back to the amount of delay most people are willing to deal with before picking another option.”

The Paradigms of Parking (Reinventing Parking)

This is not ideology. This is pragmatism. There is a huge cost issue. Walking, biking and taking transit costs less per kilometre, a lot less to pay for people getting around. And this is even before transportation costs rise, and let’s face it, they will. Resilient cities proactively plan for that, instead of waiting for the crisis.
