Looking Ahead: Alternatives For Commercial Drive
By Terry Sidhu
In advance of our upcoming report, “The Case For A Complete Street on Commercial Drive,” we at Slow Streets would like to provide some ideas for alternative street typologies that can work for Commercial Drive. These case studies examine streets and initiatives in Bogota, Amsterdam, and Montreal in order to illustrate how Commercial Drive can become even more pedestrian friendly. We recognize that the surrounding neighborhood can change in regards to the Grandview-Woodlands plan, but this does not just mean new housing developments, but also more attractive streetscapes.
