Let us know thoughts if you've watched Walkable City

Walkable City program would change Downtown for the better for all Downtown Businesses - making them shoppable destinations. Downtown Streets should not be a bypass to bypass the Bypass as it is now for so many semi's and private vehicles which are barrelling through to the bypass or another side of town. -EW

The economic impact of Walkable Cities, and especially the improvement in viability for downtown business, is a major purpose of slowing traffic, bringing back onstreet parking, and having fewer traffic lanes on downtown streets. When making comments on Downtown Traffic, readers are welcome to mention that they have watched Jeff Speck's You Tube Video. Many of the fixes to calm traffic are simple: Broader and more pavement striping, raised and fixed planting beds, in addition to reducing the number of traffic lanes - in other words, making downtown a destination, not a bypass to bypass the bypass, as it is now for much of the unwanted through vehicles.
