When planning your city’s future, the first step, obviously, is to sort your priorities into a series of categories and subcategories. That’s what Philadelphia’s Planning Commission has done with the Philadelphia2035 project, a comprehensive citywide vision being carried out through a series of district plans.
On Tuesday, Commission staffer David Kanthor presented an update on the “Connect” portion of the project’s priority areas, the part that’s focused on transportation and utility projects. (The other two broad categories are “Thrive” and “Renew.”)
This isn’t really news, but it occurred to us that some PlanPhilly readers might actually enjoy watching a man rattle off a list of transportation projects in various stages of completion across Philadelphia. If that’s you, get yourself up to speed with the video below, where Kanthor talks about bus lanes on Roosevelt Boulevard, planning 30th Street Station, conducting a citywide parking inventory and a transportation study in University City, the Chestnut Street bike lane, a pedestrian trail from Kelly Drive to Laurel Hill Cemetery, and a bunch more projects.
