Community and environmental planning


Over the past few decades large traffic corridors, streets and parking lots have become elements that fragment communities. It doesn't have to be so. With integrated planning a street can be restored into a common environment or social stage that gathers blocks together to form a city.

In planning cars are often viewed as disturbances and something that should be pushed aside, whereas residents often see them as a natural part of their everyday lives. By mixing functions, parking can be integrated into the neighbourhood. Street areas are made safer by applying the results of traffic psychology.
