Info on the January 24th meetup
Wow!! I never thought this group would blow up like this. I am pretty psyched about 7 other people coming to this event. I have been bogged down with my internship as of late, so I haven't had a chance to work on anything for this event, but my hope is that these meetups are open forums where people can discuss sustainable development and new urbanism as well as network with others who are interested in the area. Personally, I am looking to research the feasibility of a housing co-op in Pittsburgh, something which I believe is a vital part of new urbanism as well as achievable considering the low cost of housing and the large student population in Pittsburgh. I will also try and get an impromptu presentation of the City Repair project which takes place in places like Seattle and Portland. If anyone has any ideas or projects they want to get together on, feel free to present them at the meetup. See ya soon!
