Redeveloping Our Neighborhoods: Goodbye Suburbs, Hello NewUrbs

first_img#The other dynamic of change: Under-performing asphalt# Postwar suburban parking lots have leapfrogged and leapfrogged each other to the point of being centers in themselves; they’re not the outskirts anymore. It makes sense to build a parking deck on top of these parking lots, build up and develop Main Streets around them. How do you retrofit a dead mall? The key to retrofitting a dead mall (or big box, or parking lot, or strip mall) is providing the neighborhood with the “Third Place.” Home is the first place; work is the second. The third place is a place to hang out and gather. Great restaurants, parks, lakes, etc. Day-lighting a river helps the river ecology, draws attention to the natural world, and makes space to construct a walking path along it — welcome to the third place. #Some dramatic examples:# Mashpee Commons in Massachusetts has been undergoing retrofits for over 20 years; on top of parking lots, they have built an urban center with shopping, dining and living space. BelMar in Lakewood, Colo. was a mall on a 100 acre super-lot. It is now 22 walkable blocks with public streets, bus lines, and a mix of housing types. This retrofit development includes 1,500 households in an urban atmosphere. #Three reasons why it’s important to retrofit the suburbs:# 1. Climate change — urban dwellers have 1/3 the carbon footprint of suburban dwellers By urbanizing the suburbs, we can dramatically slash our dependence on oil (foreign or otherwise) while cutting our pollution output. 2. Public health — The Centers for Disease Control connects suburbs with sedentary lifestyles, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Kids born this year will have a 1 in 3 chance of developing diabetes, according to CDC. 3. Affordability — Real estate is expensive. When people can’t afford a house in the city, they look in surrounding areas. This “drive till you qualify” model will not work as gas prices shoot through the roof. In the suburbs around Atlanta, people spend 29% of their income on housing and 32% on transportation. If that’s not surprising enough, realize that these are 2005 numbers — before $4/gallon gasoline. #Three challenges for future:# 1. Plan retrofits systemically at the metropolitan scale — where should we re-green, redevelop, and regenerate? 2. Improve architectural design quality — a town common is a great first step, but she shows a picture of an astroturf town common in Silver Spring Maryland which doesn’t really satisfy. 3. Get people to demand this. Astroturf town commons are good for at least one thing: they make people demand actual grass.RELATED CONTENTGreen Homes: Green Neighborhood in North Carolina Blog: Slums of the Future Blog: Starting a Revolution at NeoCon Blog: Green Neighborhoods and Communities #Key suburban retrofit concepts:# 1. Develop pockets of walkability on under-performing sites, such as dying malls and big box stores. 2. Retrofit corridors systematically — convert 4- or 6-lane commercial ‘strips’ into boulevards. 3. Re-Green critical areas: Because densification won’t work everywhere, restoring the local ecology is necessary in some places. Durham-Jones cites an example in Minneapolis where a dead shopping center was restored to wetlands, creating lakefront property, which attracted investment/development and spurred the local economy. #Retrofitting the suburbs is practical for a couple of reasons:# Demographers tell us that in 2000, 2/3 of suburban households didn’t have kids, and they estimate that by 2025, 75% of new households won’t include kids. Why? Because baby boomers and Gen Y are the biggest lumps in the population blob. Gen X members are having kids, but they’re a small slice of the pie. Gen Y members aren’t having them yet and will likely have fewer of them when they do. Gen Y and Boomers both want more urban lifestyles, and most of them can’t afford Manhattan. I stumbled across an interesting TED talk the other day. TED — an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design — began as a conference in 1984. The speakers are limited to 18 minutes, so the talks make great background noise as I cook dinner. I’m sure that my kitchen was not intended to be the final venue of these talks — but, hey, that’s what happens when you load all your stuff onto the Web. Anyway, after reading the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Research’s 2009 Remodeling Report and the Urban Land Institute’s Housing in America: the Next Decade , I’ve been watching this topic closely. Both reports discuss the demographic shifts that Ms Durham-Jones explains in her TED Talk. Some highlights of the talk that I scribbled down as I watched it: Retrofitting the suburbs is going to be THE BIG design and development project of the 21st century, says Ellen Durham-Jones, a professor of architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dying malls, big box stores, and parking lots all offer retrofit opportunities. These spaces represent some of the least sustainable landscapes in the built environment. We now have an opportunity to retrofit them into more sustainable landscapes. This will benefit local economies as well as local ecosystems. last_img read more

Thousands of MTS bus riders each day will use these two new state-of-the-art bus platforms on the SR-15 freeway.Rapid 235 already travels along the SR-15, but previously had to exit the freeway at both University Ave. and El Cajon Blvd. to drop off passengers, cross these major thoroughfares, pick-up new passengers and re-enter the freeway. With the opening of the two new “Centerline” transit stations, Rapid 235 now enters two transit stations directly from the SR 15 median for more efficient rider drop-off and pick-up.Added bonus! Rapid 235 passengers will enjoy 2.5 miles of traffic-free travel thanks to Centerline’s dedicated bus lanes along the SR-15KUSI’s Ed Lenderman was live in City Heights with the details.

Genetically modified moths pass greenhouse testing ready for the wild

first_img Parasitoid larvae in caterpillars affect behaviour of moths Diamondback moth. Credit: Olei/Wikipedia/CC-BY-SA-2.5 and GNU FDL Citation: Genetically modified moths pass greenhouse testing, ready for the wild (2015, July 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-07-genetically-moths-greenhouse-ready-wild.html © 2015 Phys.org (Phys.org)—A team of researchers at British company Oxitec has developed a genetic approach to controlling diamondback moth caterpillars and report that trials in greenhouse conditions has gone so well that they are ready to conduct tests in the wild. In their paper published in the journal BMC Biology, the team describes their technique, how it works, how safe they believe it is and their hopes that their efforts will lead to reduced crop destruction by the caterpillars Diamondback moth caterpillars are one of the world’s worst insect pests—they eat holes in the leaves of kale, cabbage, canola, broccoli and cauliflower, killing the plants and causing billions in dollars of losses for farmers around the world each year. Efforts to curb them have been mixed and the caterpillars appear to be winning—they have developed immunity to most chemicals applied to kill them. For that reason scientists have looked to other ways to tackle the problem, one of which is genetic modification. The team at Oxitec, has come up with a way to cause female offspring of the moths that parent the caterpillars to die before they can reproduce, slowly causing a drop in population when they are released into a native group.In coming up with their self-limiting gene approach the team added another piece of usefulness—an off switch. The gene only self-limits in the absence of tetracycline, such as when the moth is out in the wild. To grow a community of the moths, the team need only feed them food with the chemical added. They note that their technique allows for targeting just diamondback moths, thus other insects would not be harmed—and neither would birds or other animals if they eat the moths or caterpillars.The team at Oxitec report that greenhouse environment testing has gone very well—so well in fact they are ready to test their technique in the wild—in limited releases, of course. Officials with the Department of Agriculture in the U.S. have given the go ahead for new outdoor trials in New York State. This would not be the first testing of its kind, similar genetic engineering on mosquitoes has been tested in Panama, the Cayman Islands and Brazil—in such trials insect populations have been reduced by 90 percent.last_img read more
