Actually, it's both. Central Business District oil can be prescribed for your urbanism-skeptical neighbors to soothe their complaints about too much height / not enough parking.

Re: Former West Publishing / County Jail development site

Like almost all major cities nationwide, our compact and sustainable cores got sprawled out into oblivion, and it's going to take a while to get that genie back in the bottle. In the meantime, we do have to find a way of getting farther-out populations into the central cities, in order to help them ...

Re: Dismantling Downtown Freeways

Those fantasy maps are great, but one thing I think they miss is the length off ramps require to be safe. The very lowest threshold in the city is from 35W to 4th st and University ave. Those ramps are so short, cars come screaming off the freeway and need to slam on the brakes. Super unsafe for al...

Re: Suburbs - General Topics

It's funny that someone would call the proposed development "eyesores" when the intersection currently has two shuttered buildings, a vacant lot (that looks like it was probably another closed business), and a rather sad-looking laundry. Yet that, somehow, is better than what's proposed? But of cou...
