What do all these great streets have in common?

September 11, 2012

The website Better! Cities and Towns recently posted an article about what makes great city streets great. There are a lot of things at play in the examples they give from cities around the world, including multi-modal transportation, safe sidewalks, restaurants, and trees. I couldn’t help but notice that this was a common thread throughout all of the examples, and I was excited to see a portion of the article dedicated to the value of trees in urban areas and the effect they have on making city streets great. There was even a specific reference to green infrastructure benefits.

Here’s to green streets!
