Buffalo's newest blog - Joe the Planner - debuted yesterday!
...in my humble opinion, there are scant few good urban planning blogs, so I wanted to create an enlightening, provocative, and entertaining forum for planning-focused issues in my hometown of Buffalo, NY.
"Joe" - covers the city's parking issue with his first post - Putting parking in its proper place.
I'll be adding "Joe" to my daily read.
The fresh angle is this: the city doesn't need to add another high-priced manager and yet another layer of bureaucracy. We can get much better management of downtown transportation/parking assets if we better utilize the resources we've already got. Private companies routinely reorganize management structures to adapt to changing conditions, so why can't the city?
