Smart growth self-tours

The Greenbelt Alliance offers up a few turn-by turn “self-guided outings… through neighborhoods around the Bay Area, highlighting “good developments”:http://www.greenbelt.org/whatwedo/prog_cdt_projectsummary.html and pointing out opportunities for even more” — a good template for those wanting to do a “Tour de Sprawl”:http://www.northstar.sierraclub.org/tour-de-sprawl (Twin Cities link, or try “Athens, Georgia”:http://www.bikeathens.com/activities/tds/index.html)

I’d talked with local Sierra Club people about doing one, but the requisite two or three meetings never happened or the right people just didn’t come together; it might be fun to assemble one for next year’s Spaces & Places.
