Three in brief

* MTC, the Bay Area’s MPO, has a “Pedestrian & Bicyclist Safety Toolbox”:http://www.bayareatrafficsignals.org/toolbox/Index.html of education, enforcement, and engineering tools at various price points: from brochures to bike boulevards.

* The Pew Climate Center has published “reports on buildings”:http://www.pewclimate.org/global-warming-in-depth/all_reports/buildings/index.cfm that I should read, notably “this one”:http://www.pewclimate.org/policy_center/policy_reports_and_analysis/buildings/index.cfm

* Another worthy cause: Obama and Solis cosponsored an APHA written bill to spend more federal money so that planners can examine “healthy places”:http://www.apha.org/nphw/2006/pg_newsletter_4-4-06.htm, including sponsored research on the built environment’s role in health and local Health Impact Assessments. It turns out that CNU board member Dhiru Thadani heads the Washington practice of “ASG”:http://www.apha.org/nphw/2006/pg_newsletter_4-4-06.htm, which rents office space from APHA.
