About the Show

Does America have a transportation strategy? We'll speak with David Goldberg of the group Transportation for America to find out what realtors, civic leaders, urban planners and non-profit organizations are doing to tackle the problem of how we get around.

And we'll speak with John Campbell about one of the most exciting revitalization projects happening in North America, the Toronto Waterfront. The Waterfront works across a broad sector of public and private organizations to create parks, public spaces and cultural institutions along Toronto's shore aimed at reducing sprawl and developing sustainable communities.

Additional support for Smart City is provided by National Trust Main Street Center, host of the 2009 Main Streets Conference: Becoming Main Street 2.0, in Chicago, March 1-4, 2009 focusing on how to use new technology in Revitalizing America's traditional business districts to build sustainable communities.
