Valentine's cards for that special person who completes the street in your heart

Valentine's Day is coming up, but what do you do if your love for urban planning is eclipsed only by the love for your spouse or significant other? Reader Nick showed us how to combine the two with these cards from from the appropriately-named Planning Love blog.

Mixed use is better for our neighborhoods, but it's important to communicate that there is only one person for you.

Still, true love has no speed limit (unlike our city streets, which definitely do have speed limits and you should obey them).

And I know Valentine's Day can be tough for single people. Take heart and know there is someone out there for you though. Start by asking people if they'd like to know how DC's streets are organized and if they say yes, immediately ask them out.

Then, just imagine how you'll feel when you offer to pay for a cab after your first date, and he or she will look at you and say, "why don't we just take CaBi instead?" That's when you know you've found the one.
