Livable Cities


Very interesting………..sorry I missed your talk. What were some of the discussion themes? Any zingers?

As a Somerville Resident, I am genuinely shocked with some of the new mixed use projects being proposed in my neighborhood and their lack of “a garden for everyone.” When you begin to combine the projects, the percentage of building and asphalt becomes overwhelming. Seems like a cost benefit analysis of green space in urban areas may be the only tool to shift city planners, zoning and developers perspective on what is valuable. However, maybe too many people automatically picture the suburbs when someone says ‘green space,’ as you seem to have suggested in the beginning of your presentation slides.
