A website I will spend more time with.

The great thing about Web 2.0- is you find one site- then you check a comment- and get taken to another site- apparently someone in Ohio is talking about realistic goals for “redeveloping downtowns”- and the answer isn’t more surface parking. Here is the link:
About Get Urban America

I’ll be looking at this site some more- but, my take is that we need to start taxing surface parking lot operators at a value of what could be there- rewarding those who build parking with retail on the first floor- and housing on top.

This isn’t a set in stone idea- just a concept, that would need to be massaged to fit the overall regional goals.
