Week 10 (Continued) Lecture:
Improving paved roads to provide access to basic needs
Paved roads were built because of sanitation system and epidemics (cholera)
Duany is talking about sprawl in urban context
Theres a phenomenon on leapfrogging
One of the drawbacks of neo-traditional development is that housing prices have
increased (over a million dollars), which creates social problems and social equity
By putting streets in grid pattern and shrink walking distances, youre limiting the
use of autos
Granny flats provide more housing and more affordability
In many municipalities, granny flats are not legal
Moving students to different pods are contributing to carbon footprint and global
warming
People who live close to the school will even drive to school
Dr. Jim Lagro is not pleased with new urbanist development
We need some place to walk to
Walkable urbanity makes places pleasant to walk
We have to build more new urbanism rather than one infill development, which
wont encourage us to walk because there is no place to walk to
The main purpose for walking is to walk dogs
It is hard to know your neighbours in suburban design because lawns are stretched
far apart and are created for automobiles
Neo-traditional homes allow you to know your neighbours
Brownfield = taking old factories and manufacturers and turning into neo-
traditional development
There are many planners who dont agree with neo-traditional planning
European split = 1/3 active transportation, 1/3 transit, 1/3 automobile
We need to have large expenses of new urbanism
Most official plans simply do not allow new urbanist development in large scale
because it is difficult
Week 11 Lecture:
We see significant population growth
Were going to see an increase in labour force
Streetcars system in Port Credit were dismantled and replaced with new roads
There is no agricultural land in the entire city of Mississauga, no natural areas
(wood lots, wet lands, etc.)
The city was based on low density suburban sprawl
The plan now is intensification automobiles will get worse
We can see that streetscape is degraded over time
There are big box retail stores, strip malls, six lanes of traffic
It is necessary for urban design because not pedestrian or bicyclist friendly
What city of Mississauga wants to do is put in a transit system that creates
connectivity and has sense of place

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
