Jeff Speck - Walkable City

Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
A city planner and co-author of Suburban Nation, Speck builds on the claim that cities are the key to sustainable living by showing that the essence of livable urban areas is their walkability. Replace highways with boulevards, parking lots with main streets—it seems simple. Speck discusses how to achieve such goals and looks at midsize cities such as Lowell, Tacoma, and Grand Rapids as models for the future.
