Chicago Thu Jun 11 2009
You guys ready for bus stations made out of gummi and the tearing up of roads to install 13,000 miles of bumper car track? Because if you leave it to me, that's what our region will look like.
Unfortunately for me, but lucky for you, CMAP isn't ONLY asking me to help plan the region. They're asking all of us to contribute in a project called GO TO 2040. The site has unbelievably cool tools that allow you to fiddle with different planning factors--land consumption, infrastructure spending and priorities--and develop a plan for the region.
In 2040, I'll be 60 years old and preparing to be supported by young whippersnappers of different varieties. Hopefully the unfocused growth and haphazzard development of the Chicagoland area over the last forty years will not continue--we pay a huge price in inefficiency and redundancy. Head on over to CMAP and have your say.
