Interesting news titbits from around the web

From around San Diego:

From around California and beyond:

  • A wonderful mini-documentary about CicLAvia. Another 172 days before the next CicLAvia begins.
  • Jan Gehl’s Incremental Approach to Urbanism – Gehl is a famed urbanist responsible in a large part for making Copenhagen what it is today. Gehl’s philosophy includes looking at the urban environment as a habitat for human beings that human beings would feel welcome being a part of. Part of the vision to get residents to re-imagine the city without the car is to create spaces that are temporarily closed to automobile traffic, not unlike CicLAvia. Here in San Diego, the group of advocates working on bringing our own CicLAvia to San Diego have received tremendous support but have been unable to find an organization or agency willing to take on a role to receive funds and then disburse it to pay for the closure of streets (primary expenses are for SDPD and for insurance)
