What next?


Arriving at Informed Conclusions Economic Realities: Poised for continued growth Community Preferences: More motoring will harm quality of life Expert Opinions: Quality infrastructure will attract new bicyclists Corridor Traffic Analysis: Road diet results in limited congestions increases A New City Square: Requiring further study, Tamanend Square can be Philly’s next great public space
