Creating walkable, urban, human-centered neighborhoods in the Granary District.
Maybe not COMPLETELY without cars, but without having to use cars to get around for all the daily needs. I don't like cars. I don't hate cars — they're very useful for what they show in the commercials; driving up super-windy roads to go skiing, or camping in the great outdoors, but besides that I don't want to use one a regular basis.
I'd rather to get to work and go to the store this way ...
Back to the question — I could imagine a Salt Lake City without cars; it's a long shot, but I could, at least the urban core. With all of the existing planned and proposed mass transit and bike lanes, it could be done.
What changes/sacrifices would I have to make a car-free Salt Lake City more realistic?
-Live in a transit-friendly, denser/ more compact, mixed-use (residential/ retail/ commercial) neighborhood (yes, please)
-Brave the elements walking and biking around (yes, please)
-Live in smaller spaces (yes, please)
-Learn how to change a bike tire (already do!)
Could you imaging Salt Lake City without cars? What would you change/ sacrifice to make it a reality?
