Resilience

Via Planetizen:

Back when I was a citizen representative on MPAC, my favorite question to ask as we were starting the current update of the regional transportation and land use plans (they should be done in a year or three) was:

“What can we do to make our region resilient against rising energy costs and climate change?”

Apparently I was not alone. There is now a book on the topic (I just put it on hold at the library). From the review, one of the topic areas:

“Sustainable Transport City: Cities, neighborhoods, and regions will be designed to use energy sparingly by offering walkable, transit-oriented options supplemented by electric vehicles.”
