      Has anyone here ever run across a solid report or study showing that local
      businesses suffer financially when a zone is pedestrianized or made bike
      accessible?



      Or that real estate prices take a nose dive when such improvements are made?



      Most of us here know about the other side of this coin, but it occurred to
      me that this such references might be useful to us all, given that these
      local conflicts and claims come up time and time again in cities around the
      work..
