Tuesdays at APA-Chicago: Municipal Design Review in Metropolitan Chicago (podcast)

Douglas J. Thomsen, AICP

This podcast was a very intellectual presentation/discussion between two seasoned professionals. I would have enjoyed hearing more about the outcomes and findings of some of the studies mentioned. Although the discussion was based more in principle than policy, more visuals would have been good.

Tuesdays at APA--Chicago: Walkability: Fact or Myth? (Podcast)

Barry Pearl, AICP

The presenter made a number of good points about changing the way planners think about modifying travel habits by creating urban environments. Comparing what are being presented as "new urbanist" landscapes and traditional shopping malls and strip malls shows the problem with isolating nodes from high density residential development prevents feasible walking trips. Harkening back to the days of corner stores (eliminated by rezoning non-conforming uses) demonstrated the importance of having a realistic service area. Creating desirable locations with a mix of land uses and higher density without forcing change on existing low-density neighborhoods sounds like a realistic approach to achieve success.

(The title did not match the presentation slides). This presentation provided interesting examples of the benefits to communities from dense development, particularly mixed-used development. A typical mixed-use highrise can generate ten to one hundred times the revenue of a low-density residential development or a big box retail cluster. They also consume fewer city revenues in services provided. Such economies of scale would be expected to favor dense, transit-oriented development typical of new urbanist projects. They don't work in all situations, though, due to variations in demand. A number of planning tools are becoming available to use data to help drive planning and zoning decisions. The author favors form-based codes over incentive zoning and other tehcniques, due to the control planners are given to determine the types of development they want.

I learned that other chapters provide a volunteer service to local communities. We should be doing more of this in APA.
