You build new neighborhood retail.
Create walkable streets with patios, benches, places to gather.
Restaurants, bakerys, pubs, shops.
We need to slow things down to make it attractive.
I guess I just don't see the room, demand, desire... whatever... for any of that. I'm on board with creative ways to slow down traffic on SW Trafficway, but the idea that we're somehow going to turn it into an idyllic urban dreamscape seems a bit too ambitious.
