Help Us List the Best Livable Streets Blogs

Earlier this week, the Open Planning Project announced that they are putting together a list of all the best Livable Streets blogs from around the country and beyond. In their "help wanted" post they explained:

 As part of our forthcoming redesign (more on that soon) we are looking
to build a comprehensive list of the very best "Livable Streets" blogs
in the United States. Regular readers may recall that we made a similar request for help about a year ago and got lots of great responses in the comments section.

As part of the team putting together the list, I’m asking for your help to put together the best list possible.  If you know of any Livable Streets blogs, please either drop me an email or post the information in the comment section.  A Livable Streets blog is any online publication that discusses transportation, urban life, or planning from a perspective that public places, especially streets, sidewalks and parks, are best utilized when the general public  has the most access.

If I’m on a first name basis with the blog writer, there’s a good chance I already have the blog in the list but feel free to send along or post the information anyway.  For example, it wasn’t until earlier this month that I found out that Darrell Clarke had his own blog, and I’ve been talking transit with him for six months.
