from Local Streets to People Streets; in Support of Brownfields; the Opportunity for Greening;
In a posting on an upcoming international conference in Stockholm on “Future of Places”, it is noted; “why cities need to embrace a people-centred approach in order to achieve positive urbanization and avoid falling victim to the negative attributes often accompanying urbanization” and “the inability of cities to manage growth to best utilize limited space….in pursuit of sustainable urban development.”
On another thought, venture capitalists, corporate turnaround hawks, and activist shareholders come into corporations, look at invested, idle capital at hand, look at potential returns that could be generated, and conjure up opportunities for increasing their financial gains from the idle capital. Why should cities not do the same, look at their streets, and maximize the revenue from that asset?
