Walk This Way

Homeowners want walkable neighborhoods and a sense of community—and city planners are taking note.

Imagine how your week might look in a community with a range of transportation options. Monday is sunny and pleasant; at lunchtime, you walk from work to a European-style open-air café. On Wednesday, you leave the car at home and walk to the nearby light-rail stop, but Thursday you need to take the kids to T-ball and stop by the grocery store after work, so you drive the flex-fuel minivan. Friday you again commute by rail, then walk from work to a nearby shopping center for inner and a movie. Saturday morning you carry your bicycle onto the city bus, which you ride to a lakeside park for a day of bike riding.
