8/19 Links

Apologies for the recent dearth of posts here on Urban Indy.  I know I personally needed a mental break from the blog world, plus I’ve been busy with trying to sell a house, but I hope to get back in to the swing of things this week.  Here is a list of some recent links that I have found interesting.  I don’t plan on making this type of post a habit, but it works for now.

  • IndyDPW has started a weekly podcast, this one is an interview with department head Lori Miser.
  • Indianapolis Greenways has scheduled public meetings this week to discuss their master plan.
  • More info on IndyGo’s real time bus tracking rollout from the Indy Star.
  • Something to keep in mind for next month: Open Streets Indy is a large event which will shut down auto traffic along Westfield Boulevard from Broadway to 53rd Streets on September 29th.

  • The DPW podcast is surprisingly good quality! Plenty of garbage podcasts out there sound like they were recorded on a cassette deck in mom’s basement, but this is definitely not one of them.
    I was encouraged to hear the director of DPW speaking so forcefully about her desire to develop transit options and integrate them into bike/ped infrastructure. And here I was expecting them to talk about cars and more cars…

    • Just a heads up, Lori Miser is a planner, not an engineer, so I think she gets it on these issues. Unfortunately, she works in a city where most citizens, for the most part, do not get it.

      In any case, I think DPW could still do better.
