I saw this article over the long weekend and just had to share it. Joe is such a good friend as well as an inspiration. I love seeing him get this kind of attention.
He can dazzle you, your boss, and your local governing board with his numbers. His tax analysis of comparing compact downtowns to urban sprawl is really awesome. He shows that even the crappiest little downtowns well outperform the traditional power centers we’ve all come to loathe (or love?).
It’s really hard to argue with his analysis. And how he delivers the message. It’s powerful.
And I've been sitting on this one for a while too. Joe makes an appearance, as well as his sidekick Josh (another great guy), and the narrative is really solid.
You can get a hold of Joe and Josh through their website on Urban-3.
