2141Carfree Development List
- Jan 3, 2001Thanks to all for contributing to this list. I'm excited
about this project and will be putting it together for
the next year or so. I'd like for it to be as complete
as possible, with any details we can get about ratios
of green space to paved space, photos, maps, data
about public transport systems, the whole nine yards.
To address some comments I've seen so far on the list:
* Mike Lacey makes a great point that we should use care in what
we call carfree development. I think I will separate the
database into different levels of carfree-ness. Ie, historic
core, neighborhood, street, etc. We can definitely have
a paragraph describing the amount of car-dependence
that still exists under a link from each listing. We can go
into as much detail as we need. For now, I'm just throwing
everything into a sloppy text file, but once I'm ready to
really start working on this (mid-February), I'll develop
a fancy-ish Filemaker database.
* About Manhattan: is that 90% carfree statistic accurate?
Is there a source I can reference?
* About Mont St. Michel, France: can we get some details
about just how carfree this town is?
* Copenhagen: ... and don't forget Christiania!
* Any links on the web about Bhaktapur?
* When I went to Zermatt, I went by train. Same for Venice
(although there are parking garages at the ntrance to the old city)
