Take a walk to get your groceries. Take some pictures if you like. Share the story of your experience and whatever observations you took away from it, on the Strong Towns Forum. I've posted my own story there as an example, feel free to use that as a template for yours.
We are in uncharted waters with more questions than answers. In every city in this country, we need to start trying a lot of things – a lot of little experiments – and start figuring out what is going to work. At Strong Towns, we have ideas, lots of rational notions that we would recommend you try, but nothing like a simple solution. If you’re waiting for one of those, especially if you are on a city staff, you are actually part of the problem.
