I’m thinking of starting a regular feature on this blog highlighting “good ideas” in urban development, and I’d like your help.

Have you visited or lived in a city and wished some of its planning, design, architecture, politics, or whatever could be magically transplanted to Richmond? I’m thinking of things like bike lanes, mass transit, environmental innovations, community gardening projects, or whatever.

Or, if you’re particularly pleased with something good happening locally, that’s great too.

Just send your ideas, preferably with links to articles, explanations, and/or pictures to:

Also be sure to let me know if and how you’d like to be credited.

If enough people respond with suggestions, I’ll run this feature every Friday.
