Urban Planning In Portland

NPR's Science Friday features a segment on planning in Portland.

"Portland, Oregon, has a plan for development -- and it doesn't include urban sprawl. Instead, there's a densely-populated downtown, mixed-use neighborhoods, plenty of open space and lots of public transit options. Host Ira Flatow and guests discuss the city's urban plan and the challenges it faces to continued sustainable and responsible development." The entire segment is available in streaming audio.
