Urban Dwelling and carbon footprints


As gas prices increase the lure of downtown living becomes more and more popular. In fact one may be able to point to this as just one of serveral reasons downtown living has become more popular across the country and especially cities like Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Chicago. Part of the challenge for Urban Planners is handling the influx of cars in an urban environment when residents relocate from suburban environments. Many real estate agents touting downtown viability as well as the economics of living downtown have gone to putting commute calculators on their websites. I found one at: http://www.rideshare.511.org/calculator/ in case you would like to see the thousands one can save by living downtown.
