|The "life cycle" abstracts mobility out of the picture!|
Transportation and access to goods/services is invisible
(this clip occurs in several docs)
(Since the lead-time is so compressed, I want to stress these are nearly totally random bits, the result of quickly skimming, not the result of any meaningful consideration.)
The first two clips are from the draft Employment Implementation Strategy:
|Downtown is important!|
|A robust menu of transportation options!|
|Make short trips without driving!|
|Reduce miles traveled on trips!|
What's it going to take to make City Staff at the nuts-and-bolts level actually implement these policies in a serious way?
Also, going back to the first clip on maintaining downtown as a regional center, we've seen this before:
|Vision 2020: "Expand" City Center|
by sending Traffic to Keizer Station
The Salem River Crossing planning process and our interests in preserving downtown as a regional center are plainly and hugely incoherent.
The docs have lots of "this will be filled in the revised version of the document" so maybe there's not a whole lot more to say just now.
