MOTORDOM

Published on

Presentation by Gordon Price on Motordom (or designing cities/regions around the auto), and the affect that it has on our cities. He also looks at how the pillar need to building auto-oriented communities; cheap, secure energy is coming to a close and that puts us in bad place. He looks at how due to project such as the Gateway Program and lack of transit funding, the South Fraser is looked into a auto-oriented future.

He also presents example of good urban design in Metro Vancouver.

  • Transportation systems connect everything, and the transportation issues is complex. It involves the world&apos;s biggest industries: energy and automobiles. The manufacturing, selling and servicing of cars comprises a significant chunk of most country&apos;s GDP. (A Ford SUV plant in Wayne, Michigan has made more after-tx profit for Ford in one year than the combined budgets of every municipality in B.C.) TransLink is limited by senior governments&apos; legislation and tax policies, by international economic movements, by cultural and social forces. And yet what we do will be essential to maintaining the economic, environmental and social health of this prized region on the globe. So what is out plan. That&apos;s Part III.
