Walkable?

January 4, 2011

Smart growth, TOD, TND, LEED-ND have all been in the news recently but what does it all mean?  What is a walkable community?  My vision for a walkable community is a mixed use neighborhood integrated into effective mass transportation systems  where a diverse community of mixed backgrounds and socioeconomic status thrive in a sustainable built environment; burying the sprawl based artifacts of interior facing malls and cul-de-sacs.
