Built to accommodate vehicles, certain cities can now learn from other cities around the world to accommodate change and promote a healthy, active, and social community for residents.
Calgary, pay attention here… 😉
As seen on CBC’s The National from January 28, 2015, check out the video with some stellar stats:
To sum up, cities should encourage the use of:
- alternate forms of transportation (biking, hiking, walking, hopping, crawling, transit, anything other than driving!)
- compact cities providing sufficient and affordable living spaces IN city centers, discouraging urban sprawl
- narrow roads and create proper bike/pedestrian paths and tracks
Oh, the possibilities!
