Do Real Planning #13: Narrow Road Widenings

The walkability of urban streets is directly related to the linear foot allocation between roadway and sidewalk. My office consistently supports the pedestrian realm, not only by planning ahead (see our walkabouts referenced in "Demand a Walkable City") but also by emphasizing pedestrian-based design and scale in our neighborhoods. In Atwater Village, the Pedestrian-Oriented District is an unqualified success along Glendale Boulevard.
