Planetizen Week in Review: July 25, 2016
The 2016 version of the Republic National Convention made its visit to Cleveland last week, and while the mainstream media focused on the speeches, urbanism-focused media focused on the up-and-down recovery of Cleveland. Don't forget the Republic Party's official 2016 platform, however, which lays out a policy agenda of consequence for the federal government's approach to the built environment.
Making the rounds on some of Planetizen's favorite websites last week were dueling takes on the housing market and a bunch of fancy new renderings for a proposed $27 billion redesign project for the New York subway. Finally, the National league of Cities did a semantic analysis of 100 "State of the City" speeches.
