Focus on parking lot

Arroyo GrandeJuly 24, 2013 

Much time and effort go into planning “walkable neighborhoods,” where you can live without a car, walk to work, shop, etc. In the real world, people drive, then walk.

Instead of wasting time on walkable neighborhoods, planners should try to build “walkable parking lots.” These lots are designed so that one can walk on a curb from close to the store, all the way out to the far reaches of the parking lot. Some drivers will park far from the store, if it is safe to walk from the store back to the car.
