Buses may still come to Ivy City:
Mayor Gray still wants to proceed with Ivy City bus parking
and will appeal a judge's ruling over Kenyan McDuffie's objections. (City Paper)
Go green to save green:
Instead of a large and expensive tunnel system, DC Water may go for a more decentralized, greener solution
for its stormwater management plan, involving rain barrels and rain gardens that could even save money. (DCmud)
Long Branch bets on transit:
In its new sector plan, Maryland's Long Branch neighborhood is planning itself around transit
in anticipation of a Purple Line station. One proposal would require developers to build pedestrian-friendly projects. (Patch)
Count on it:
The Federal Highway Administration has issued guidelines on how to count cyclists and pedestrians
which should improve the quality of data localities collect. Better data should make getting performance-based funding easier.
People talk commutes:
The Washington Post is hosting a symposium this morning
on transportation and commuting issues, which you can watch live online. Speakers include Rob Puentes from Brookings, Senator Ben Cardin, ACT's Ben Ross on a panel on transit, Stewart Schwartz from CSG, and at approximately 10:00, David Alpert, Harriet Tregoning, and DDOT bike planner Jim Sebastian.
