Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

How not to create traffic jams, pollution and urban sprawl
#1
An excellent article on parking in The Economist, highlighting the wasted space, the costs and the folly of parking minimums and free parking.

(Free to read, up to three articles per week.)

Is it too much to hope that some of our politicians might read this, too?

Good article.

In regards to urban sprawl, there's always the old saying: build up, not out.

Which makes it hilarious when the Globe prints articles about warehouse owners building farther up as if it's a new thing.
