"I used to live in Lakewood for about a year and I happen to know that they didn’t have any school buses and that they had arranged their schools so they were all within walking distance for their students, and I had never heard of that and I thought it was a really cool concept that people in other places might be interested."

I love this example of great (sub)urban development that actually makes sense and is beneficial for city residents. Good way to reduce pollution (and road rage), good way to get kids into a naturally active lifestyle, and good way to develop a closer community. 

Very cool infographic!
