Last call for millennials?:
Might cities have just a few more years to attract millennials
? This cohort, which has clustered in cities like DC, may be mostly settled within a decade, as millennials get older and raise families. (Governing)
Philly zoning update crippled:
A Philadelphia City Council committee rolled back much of the city's zoning update
, which would have allowed smaller units and relaxed parking minimums. Councilmembers meddle too much in zoning in their own districts. (NAC)
Civic group vs. ANC in Bloomingdale:
Unhappy that one Ward 5 ANC supported McMillan development, the civic association will hold a "vote of no confidence"
and hopes other groups will do the same. (City Paper)
"Idiot" drives on sidewalk:
A Cleveland woman drove up on the sidewalk—repeatedly—to pass a stopped school bus. She got caught, and now has to wear an "idiot" sign in public for 2 hours. (Plus, the court suspended her license). (NPR, Matt')
Phoenix aims to save pedestrians:

of 10% fewer pedestrian deaths each year, down to 0 by 2020. But it has a long way to go: with a low rate of walking, 42% of traffic fatalities are now pedestrians. (Streetsblog)
