The End of “Carcatecture” – “Breaking the Cycle of Automobile Dependency”
June 11, 2019 / No Comments
My recent Planetizen column, “Breaking the Cycle of Automobile Dependency,” describes how current planning practices reinforce a cycle of increased automobile use, reduced travel options, and more sprawled development. Let me describe two specific examples of this process and the structural reforms needed for more efficient and equitable planning.
These examples illustrate how biased planning favors longer-distance, motorized travel over shorter, active, affordable, energy efficient, less polluting, and healthier travel options, and sprawl over compact infill development. It’s time for reform.
