Description

Livability is a concept that has enjoyed tremendous popularity in recent years. The Federal Highway Administration established a formal “Livability Initiative” and in 2010, published a guidebook to educate transportation planning and design professionals.

But even with the enormous amount of data showing direct and tangible connections between street design and public health and safety (i.e. livability), bad design continues to show itself on a regular basis on our street networks.

If good design promotes livability, then bad design must promote the opposite of livability…killability.

City streets are intended for people of all ages and physical abilities. Let's design livable streets. Let's *reclaim* our streets!

This presentation was originally given in a Pecha Kucha (20x20) format during the 2013 American Planning Association national conference.
