There is a lot that a smart city can do with what it has. Many creative solutions come from resources right under our noses, like parking. Or, as A-P recently discussed with Sustainable Business Oregon, the heights of buildings right overhead.
The Carbon Efficient City also presents regulatory frameworks to economically incentivize good development. Strategies include reuse of existing buildings, interblock TDR, and the establishment of credits in the EIS process for developments that reduce vehicle miles traveled.
We hope you enjoy digging into the book over the weekend. See you on Monday!
Nate was born and raised at the intersection of Seattle’s Central District and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. He earned his BA in History from Western Washington University but it was a summer in New York City that sparked a passion for urban planning, livability, development and transportation issues. He volunteered with the Downtown Renaissance Network in Bellingham and Futurewise (back when it was still 1000 Friends of Washington) in Seattle. He has worked for Downtown Seattle’s Metropolitan Improvement District (MID), the Seattle Monorail Project and since 2004, as a consultant for housing and health care non-profits, mortgage and commercial real estate companies, hospitality and aviation brands as well as government and consumer technology businesses. He is a former member of the Uptown Alliance where he briefly served as the Co-Chair of the Transportation Committee (in reality, more of an understudy to D. John Coney). An employee of Great City Nate is also a former board member and one of the organizations earliest volunteers. He has also served on the executive committee of the Leschi Community Council. He is a cycle commuter, occasional bus rider and resident of Eastlake.
