Recently, with the help of dedicated PRN volunteer members, lead by Thomas Carpenito, PRN’s Parking lot tool was expanded, adding 40 new cities to the map. Below are three cities that were recently added to our map in the most recent update. Learn about what their current parking status is and how each city aims to tackle parking reform going forward.
In my thesis, I discuss the planning concept of the complete neighborhood, A.K.A. the 20-Minute Neighborhood / 15-Minute City. The concept basically says that if you can reach any daily essential within a 20 minute one way trip via active transportation (walk, bike, public transit), then you live in a complete neighborhood. In the paper, I critique the concept and suggest that the complete neighborhood should focus on a 10-minute round trip by foot to better align with people’s – especially drivers’ – willingness to walk. I also get more specific about what essentials are included in the concept and how essentials vary by culture and identity along with the need to provide essentials to those who are excluded from the free market.
