Last week the Strong Towns Network crossed over the 500 member threshold. The dialog there is really expanding -- it is really fun to see our long time readers and friends from this site show up there and expand the conversation.
- Peter Forbes asks for some advice on engaging in a TOD (transit oriented development) project near his neighborhood.
- Benjamin Douds needs some help dealing with stormwater ponds.
- Some intense analysis by David Peterson on the development pattern of Little Rock.
- Stephen Stofka provides some observations on GDP and a conversation about the validity of gold as a monetary unit ensues. A worthy topic.
- Interested in updating the AASHTO Green Book? John Burke is.
- The new transportation secretary has yet to be named. The Network dissects the merits of Jim Oberstar as a potential nominee.
- Per-acre land valuation makes little sense once one looks at the actual numbers. Joe Minicozzi chimes in on this conversation started by Peter Forbes.
And finally, I added a bonus piece as background to Monday's STROAD video as well as another short Q&A post on retrofitting STROADs.
The Strong Towns Network is our social space where we are looking to expand the conversation and help you connect to people around the world that are looking to implement Strong Towns thinking. There's no charge so join the conversation.
