Strangest Subway ever. #strongtowns #granolashotgun insta topsy.oneOut here in Lawrence, MA on this frigid day, walking ~10 miles over 12 hours getting paid to count parked cars because this city is bankrupt and doesn’t know how much surface parking it has, but DOES know that parking is a huge waste of space for economic development. So yeah, happy Saturday! #dayinthelifeofaplanningstudent #surfacelotsarestupid #strongtowns #socold insta topsy.oneThis guy is pretty brilliant.

Strong Towns invest in infrastructure and dont go into debt chasing the Siren Song of "growth". insta topsy.one#toysrus filed for bankruptcy protection today. We talk about the advantages #onlineretail has but never in context with how we laid out the #brickandmortar world. The cost of having to build #parking spaces is absorbed into the toys. If we want fewer Toys r Us bankruptcies going forward we need to eliminate parking minimums. #parking #parkingspot #parkingday #parkingminimums #strongtowns insta topsy.oneI LOVE #UrbanPlanning!

A year ago, Shreveport, Louisiana was on the brink of building a highway right through the poor inner-city neighborhood of Allendale. As residents came together and rallied against this project in order to protect their homes and their community, Strong ...

StrongTowns Has Gone Home: On-Going Thoughts Mon, 25 Jan 2016 17:24:00 GMT
After a productive series of North Bay meetings, the principals from StrongTowns and Urban3 have gone home, but not before seeding the North Bay with ideas about further steps toward an urbanist, financially sustainable, climate change moderating future.

This is depressing. Take a chance to create a cluster of walkups or townhouses, a real walkable neighborhood around a center green and plat it so less affluent people could own their home. Nope. Boutique hotel and "loft" offices. Yay. We need #strongtowns

Councils, planners, and ec dev need to be wary of growth for growth's sake... often forgetting that "tax base" is a two-sided commitment that includes services #strongtowns
