Venice is a tourist's city. But unless you are a history or architectural buff, what are you going there to see? I observed that tourists flock to Venice to enjoy its ambiance, its culture, or as I see it: good urban planning.

Why is Michigan Not a More Bikeable State?

Every year, Michigan’s political and business elite retreat to the Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island. The island is a place where bicycles, not automobiles, are the dominant vehicle of transportation. With this setting for the state’s top policy conference, why are leaders not more inspired to make Michigan a more bikeable state?

Over break, Agora sent out a call for submissions on the topic, “Why should planners care about police brutality” I thought to myself about how obvious that answer is: of course we should.

Missed Opportunities in Diversity Training

A diversity workshop was held February 9th, 2015 with high expectations from students that they would discuss the intersectionalities of race, class, and gender in the urban planning context, and have a larger dialogue of social justice and community. This blog piece highlights one MUP's reflection on the workshop.
