  1. Thanks for this link. I also read the Charter for the New Urbanism and was not impressed by the lack of actual good policy to create incentives for communities and localities to adopt environmentally friendly design and development. This is what bothers me a lot about the environmental movement and other movements in general (cultural support, arts-funding, etc).. is that the advocates of these causes believe that everyone should share the same view as they hold. This is just unreasonable and impossible to expect. To advance our movement(s) we all need to speak a common language. And toda
  2. How would the New Urbanism movement consider the importance (or not) of designing adequate room for cars. I know in some urban areas they truly limit providing adequate room for cars while other cities mandate that all new construction (condos,etc) make room on their property for at least one car/condo. Battery Park City Authority in NYC, in their recent development, Solaire, provided only 20% space for parking for all the units in their building.
