CBAs and livable streets
StreetsBlog posted an article by Noah Kazis last week about how CBAs are increasingly being used to encourage livable street designs. The Longfellow CBA, which has a variety of pedestrian and transit benefits, is cited as an example, as is the residential parking permit program included in the Staples Center CBA. And even if the New York City CBAs have so far been mostly a wash, Kazis says (in part, quoting me), he points out that CBAs are here to stay, and "Where the public makes livable streets a priority, CBAs can be useful tools."
