Trends are about change and every change has at its core, a "driver." To predict or spot a new trend, look for these basic forms of drivers.
Terrafugia flying car – UtubeGoogle’s self driving car.A fully self contained bicycle hub motor known as the GreenWheel has been developed by students at MIT
A downtown with services like groceries, drycleaners, medical services, childcare.More Mixed use that includes flats, townhomes and attached housing.Transit system that connecting to many parts of Tempe, commuter rail to Phoenix and Tucson.
Wider range of jobs which provides employment close to their homes. Tempe has a great opportunity to capture entreprenuers/jobs from research at ASU . Technology to change how buildings used – Reuse (recyling) of buildings, energy systems or space required for employees.Commercial centers reuse by churches and charter schools.In urbanizing a challenge will be to ensure that we have open space.Open space decrease when ASU converts to commerce; look for chance to supplement in urban areasHousing choices - meeting housing needs for families, single person households, elderly, disabled, and special populations (such as homeless Veterans).Every neighborhood should have a comfortable street to walk/bike, which connects to schools, community centers, and transit.
