The Year of the Small
Saffron says small is hot:
"While the lousy economy has forced cities to lower their sights, it has provided clarity about what really matters. The smart places are investing their limited disposable income in low-cost, high-impact projects that improve the quality of life for people who actually live in them."
Saffron singles out a number of small projects happening around Philadelpia, from bike lanes to modest infill projects.
