• Scale of the problem
• Ecology (paths contribute to dust in the air) • Transport (people tend to walk less and use cars more due to poor sidewalks condition) • Economic implications for local businesses and budget • Symptom of poor pedestrian network design skills • “Broken window” effect • Could only be solved at a city-wide level Why is that important?
- Create a system that
would maintain online community - Restructure inner organization to become more open-sourced - Develop partnerships - Integrate georeferenced photo bank - Best practices & library project - Publish methodology - GPS tracking style app’s - Path design software Needed technical improvements
- too few Moscow streets
are truly livable and vibrant - many people supported the project and its expansion - almost no web-sites in Russian discuss livable streets From To only Moscow Network of cities (+english?) livable streets + Pedestrians networks + Bike networks only paths + Disabled accessibility + Public spaces quality + TOD Reasons & decision: project should broaden its outlook
