I’ve recently begun a new role advising the City of Reykjavik, Iceland. Stay tuned for some really interesting/exciting announcements. One of the best parts about what I get to do is the amazing diversity of cities I get to work with. Very excited to get to know the city better!

By coincidence, my rate limit has also been exceeded lately.

“Starting in January, California will become the first US state to enact a ban on parking minimums, halting their use in areas with public transport…” via @WIRED Now let’s add new parking MAXIMUMS, and we’ll get substantially better cities as a result. wired.com/story/us-cities-ar…

Men, when you hit 45, get a #colonoscopy. It could very well save your life. My older brother died of related cancer in his mid 40s, leaving behind his wife & 3 kids, so I was recommended to get my 1st early. I do it every 2 years like clockwork (next one is this week). Do it.

When it comes to the “pseudo-science” (aka no science at all) of minimum parking regulations, the Emperor has NEVER had any clothes. And yet it’s staggering to consider the effect they’ve had on our cities, and just about every urban issue we can think of. Read this thread.
Replying to @MichaelManvill6
This is pseudoscience. It would fail stats 101. And we are using it to hugely influence how cities look and work. The city of LA to its great discredit has fought efforts to reform this broken system. This is what it defends.

This stretch of Hastings is the most dangerous area for pedestrians in Vancouver, so the speed was reduced to 30km/h. But because no actual changes were made to the street's design, no one slows down. We watched for half an hour and didn't see a single car driving the limit.

Remember, the next time an objector points out an “empty bike-lane,” it’s because they’re efficient. “This stretch in #Copenhagen conveys 8 times as many people on bikes compared to cars - still it's mostly cars we see.” — @urbanthoughts11 HT @anderspreben

Fear of climate change can make us feel hopeless or in denial. How do we turn this around? By focusing on real solutions with immediate benefits + how each of us can make a difference. The first step is so simple, we often skip right over it! ted.com/talks/katharine_hayh…

We can design our communities so that walking or rolling to the bus is pleasant and safe. But that requires good sidewalks, street trees and more. The $77 million earmarked for the Keating Flyover Interchange boondoggle could plant a lot of street trees instead. #yyj #yyjpoli
We can either design cities & communities for people where normal physical activity is an almost invisible part of daily life, or we can design places for cars where physical activity requires extraordinary effort. My comments on Australia’s @BreakfastNews

I LOVE hearing that businesses in Vancouver changed their minds when presented with facts and data. It gives me hope.

They say there isn’t room for safe, protected bike-lanes. They say there isn’t room for shade-creating, air cleaning street trees. Montreal shows that when you change your space priorities, you get better streets for EVERYONE. HT @DaveLikesBikes for video:

It’s a fact that some folks wouldn’t be able to pull a cart of food a block from the Costco to our apartment. That’s a truth that all of our planning & urban design must never forget. But many of us can, if the urban design allows it. In fact, it’s our 7 year old that pulls it.

the downtown core. They also reduce vehicle trips thereby relieving traffic congestion for drivers on the same routes. This is often overlooked! Visitors use the lanes to explore #downtownvan - tourism spending is a key driver of the downtown economy. The benefits are endless!

Hi Brent! You're right. We were originally opposed to bike lanes until we understood the importance of them in #downtownvan. We've done a complete 180 and are proud advocates of bike lanes and cycling safety. They provide a healthy and affordable commuting option into and around

Brilliant move by Biden during SOTU. He called out Republicans’ unbelievable plan to sunset Medicare and social security (I’ll name him: Rick Scott) and used the heckling to his advantage. Now Republicans will be liars if they follow through.

Same story, the world over. Cars don’t bring business - people do.
Half of business owners on this #Toronto street estimated that more than 25% of their customers arrived by car. In fact, it was 4%. And the % for those who walked or cycled? 72%. Retailers routinely overestimate the # of “car customers.” Via @carltonreid  forbes.com/sites/carltonreid…

This is a great point. We've designed cities that make us unhealthy in more ways than one.
