Does urbanism die in the winter? After the first major snowstorm of the season, a social media thread about a man who walked through the middle of the street went viral. Some community members said the man was trying to make a point about the sidewalks not being plowed. The thread lead to conversations about urbanism in the cold months.
We sit down with local urbanists who discuss how to develop urban areas that remain multi-modal year round. Our guests:
- Justin Young, member of the advocacy team at the Center for Disability Rights
- Matthew Denker, developer with LBLD Living
- Jason Haremza, planner, urbanist, citizen
- Jesse Peers, cycling coordinator for the Rochester Cycling Alliance at Reconnect Rochester
