Engage: A Genetec podcast - Episode 2 - "Streetwise"
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 where it needs to be to drive community re-investment? Today’s push for smarter cities and the battle for the curb are part of rich and contentious history that’s as old as the city itself From the first arrival of cars and paid parking to the world’s most advanced smart city models, in this episode of Engage, host Kelly Lawetz and David Chauvin drawn a line through history with a specific focus on the new battle for the curb. From the unconventional wisdom of world-renowned parking guru Dr. Donald Shoup of UCLA, author of the High Cost of Free Parking, over to Europe with Amsterdam Smart City Ambassador Frans Anton Vermast and how the next great wave of city development there is being built on data, and less on cars drivers and parking.
