About the Show

This week on Smart City: Is it possible to design a downtown that boosts the economy and helps people get around without their cars?

Urban designers George Crandall and Don Arambula of the firm Crandall Arambula think so. They join us this week to talk about 21st century retail, re-concentrating a city's downtown and why parking is still important, even when you want people to drive less.

And we'll check in with Donique Nobles. Donique is an alumnus from Teach For America who now serves as the organization's recruitment director. She'll tell us about completing the program, and how she is now working to bring other bright young college graduates into the teaching profession.
