Connections: Has urbanism become too mean?

Jun 13, 2018

Has urbanism become too mean? That's exactly what some local urbanists feel, and they're looking for ways to improve their tactics. Mocking someone for driving a car? Lampooning golfers? Is that effective?

Our guests debate what works and what doesn’t:

  • David Riley, urbanist and former newspaper reporter
  • Marlana Zink, Rochester resident with a background in planning
  • Jason Partyka, member of Reconnect Rochester
  • Phil Kehres, urban planner in Vancouver, Canada
