What Is Livability?

Other than a far too prosaic word to describe our aspirations in city building, that is.  Well, the DJC solicited 50-word answers to that question, and they were published today.  Here’s mine:

Diversity, local ownership, the public realm and environmental stewardship are all profound connectors. But above all, to achieve its full potential for cultivating connections, a city must be a place where people walk.

No more, as I sit here and watch corporations suffer it brings a smile to my face as I save up my money and hope for a better future.

    I actually made a documentary film about car-centric development and the lack of social capitol in many cities:
