SOME STUFF FROM THIS WEEK YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED.
This week, we discussed the difference between parks and greenspace, the tension between affordable housing and high home values, and the conflict between building for tourists vs. long-time residents.
The American transportation system is fundamentally messed up. But a better way forward is not only possible, it's affordable and feasible for towns big and small.
Should cities invest in big projects in the hopes of increasing tourism, or should they invest in the people that have already taken a risk by moving back into their long-dormant downtowns?
"In a sense, the infrastructure bank is the state's credit card."
How I stopped being frustrated by my city and started working to improve it, with the help of my neighbors.
Hurdles to revitalization based not on substance but control are the last thing America's cities and towns need.
The Bike Peoria Co-op offers neighbors affordable access tools to fix their bikes and training in bike maintenance skills. It's 100% volunteer run and 100% financially supported through its own efforts.
We are profoundly conflicted as a nation when it comes to housing: we want it to be affordable, but we also want its prices to rise fast enough to be valuable as a financial investment.
Numbers don’t lie, but people sure use numbers to do it.
Little free pantries are a hyper-local, small-scale way to help out neighbors who are hungry.
