Some Good Links

CityLabs redeemed yesterday’s bizarre post about how a one story building on a huge lot with three blank curtain walls was an example of urban innovation with this post by Eric Jaffe about how The Trip Generation Manual overestimates the increase in traffic from new development.

The Livable Streets Alliance has put together a great collection of facts and statistics.

Nathan Lewis writes about how to get involved in the Traditional Cities movement.

From NextCity, the futility of corporate tax breaks will soon be revealed.

And finally, two good posts from The American Conservative: one about how federal policy has hurt downtowns and one about how “traditional” development is better for cities and towns financially.
