Jason has this to say:
“I was checking out the Strong Towns podcast and came across an interesting demonstration they did in Brainerd, MN.
Here’s a link to a paper about it: http://theplannerblog.squarespace.com/storage/reports/Neighborhoods%20First%20Report.pdf
and here’s the podcast: http://www.strongtowns.org/strong-towns-podcast/2013/11/22/show-158-neighborhoods-first.html“
Looks interesting, maybe we can get some local brains thinking on the subject.
