So we have a decent draft of the results presentation over here on Likemind – but for those of you who like lists, here are the top things Likeminders would do if they would rebuild their city:Create The Right Mix To Create The Right Neighborhoods – Create neighborhoods with a communal feel by deterring the development of specific use zones and encourage the mixed use with offices, residential, social and education Waterways as Transport Alternatives – Use the waterways better to provide transport alternatives (and even provide energy) Bury The Car – Hide parking lots and highways underground Green Space, More Urban Farms – Increase vegetation on buildings Slow Down, Ride A Bike, Take A Walk – A greater introduction of bicycles, better cycle lanes and pedestrian zones. Speed up Transport System improvements – It’s taking too long everywhere Keep the identity and atmosphere Avoid planning – evolve not rebuild
