Can cities be smart? Can streets be wise? Can the curb be intelligently managed and priced dynamically to keep shoppers circulating, and paid parking occupancy at an optimal rate? Today’s push for smarter cities and the battle for the curb are part of a complex history that’s as old as the city itself.
In this episode of Engage, hosts Kelly Lawetz and David Chauvin draw a line through history with a focus on the new battle for the curb. Learn more about the unconventional wisdom of world-renowned parking guru Dr. Donald Shoup of UCLA — author of The High Cost of Free Parking — as well as Amsterdam Smart City Ambassador, Frans Anton Vermast, and how the next great wave of city development is being built on data and efficiency.
