Urban planning can promote values such as spatial efficiency, productivity, and sustainability. In Virginia, the Ivy Corridor Project will introduce a designated entrance for both the University of Virginia and the city of Charlottesville.
In U.S. cities, proponents of sustainable, inclusive, affordable, and healthful mobility have promoted walkability, cycling infrastructure, and better accommodations for cyclists. In so doing, they have emulated successful examples in Europe and Latin America, such as Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Bogotá. Despite such efforts, however, the traffic safety record in the U.S. has grown worse, especially for pedestrians and cyclists.
