Who dosen't want to "green" the city! My worry is that designs like the one shown in the photo with a mini bike lane separated from street traffic by a planted median with trees is not only impractical to the everyday functioning of a street but looks ugly.

"and another 2-3 feet for a step area to get to bridges that would take people across the new gutters"

"signage would show what a green street is about, what porous pavements do," said Tavella."

This isn't an amusement park about water runoff, it's a city. Of all the environmental issues pressing on us, this one seems to be a bit over designed for the problem at hand.
