Re: No lack of enthusiasm
True - I would bet that the youth mayors have unique contributions to make - and this is the kind of influence many cities need. I would hope that they are truly considered partners in the effort.

Re: Open Streets
It also brings people in to investigate both old and new city offerings. Yes, I like the "open" tag, too. I think promoting congregation of people rekindles city life.

Re: Green mixed use development
Actually closing the gap between the have and have nots is very important to me and the City that I live in. A large portion of the City is have nots. The political solution to some of the areas is to have people move out and stop City services. It is nice to see investment in making an area green and using technology that is occupied by have nots. I am interested in seeing how people respond and what items are successfully integrated and utilized. Also, what provides the most benefit in making a have not area green.

Re: Green mixed use development
Hi,

unfortunately I can't tell you personally about the development because I'm not involved. The point I was making was the vision of Mayor Ferguson to deliberately invest into the challenging parts of the city to try and reduce the difference between the 'haves' and the 'have nots'.


The website for the development is here:

Green mixed use development
Please blog about the progress of the mixed use green development in a challenging part of Bristol. I am interested in the problems, resolutions and outcomes.

Re: Bristol
Kim, does that mean the streets in Bristol are full of hills and snow covered most of the year?

Reward scheme
I think there is never enough incentives for green behaviour. in fact petrol companies actively reward long mileage with reward points. How can we tackle that I wonder???

Re: Open Streets
There are occasional street closings here in Fort Lauderdale for festivals, and from what I've seen the events are very successful. I think it's great to encourage people to walk and bike rather than drive. I'd like to see some of these places permanently closed to private motor vehicles.
