The Grid Network is deprecated, but the links page lives on

I’ve stopped updating the Grid Network page; no new posts since mid-April appear there. I coded the function myself and it was using too many server resources to operate, slowing down the website. The Network was build on top of our Links page, so that lives on.

Here are some of the new links we’ve added:

  • Transport Nexus. A focus on transportation policy as it relates to land use. Very wonky and written by a transit agency employee.
  • Let the Midway Bloom. The author writes about transportation in the Hyde Park area, and promotes small streets as a way to revitalize neighborhoods. He also advocates for dense housing in the Midway.
  • Chicago Streetcar Renaissance. Streetcars can be used as an economic development tool. Chicago was once riddled with tram lines.
  • TRANSPORT/LAND. A Portland, Oregon-based blog about using cargo bikes for disaster relief, coffee delivery, and carrying grandkids on trikes.

What other links should we add?

    1. Ah, yes, I read Alon’s blog. I should add Systemic Failure, too (written by someone who calls themselves the Drunk Engineer). Very funny and succinct commentary.

      1. Another good one. Also, Cap’n Transit. Cap’n Transit and Pedestrian Observations largely cover transit and land use issues from a New York perspective, but they write about many things that pertain to us in Chicago.
