First, in case you missed it, here is a link to this morning’s op-ed piece in the Tennessean which focuses on changing attitudes about transit, especially the “millennial” generation. It highlights the recent survey conducted by the Rockefeller Foundation and Transportation for America that collected attitudinal information about mobility and transit in ten American cities, including Nashville. Survey highlights can be found here.
Second, “Better Cities and Towns” recently ran a great blog on “The New American Dream.” The observations reinforce not only the conclusions of the Rockefeller survey, but but provide great context for thinking about the fundamental ways in which our view of urban and suburban living are changing. I hope you find these insights as helpful as I do.
