An Almost Car-Free Development..?

Hayward, a San Francisco-area suburb not known for pushing progressive ideals, quietly has laid the groundwork for a radical experiment in environmentally conscious living - a nearly car-free housing development.

The developer says people would rent or buy eco-friendly, garage-free homes in the densely built community with interconnected pathways. Residents would receive transit passes with the cost of their home but could pay separately for one of just 100 parking spaces.

A village square would feature a grocery store and other services. Shuttles would ferry passengers to the campus and Bay Area Rapid Transit.

While Lewis said he already has 100 people signed up to buy a home if the village is ever built.

VEER screening a big hit

Many thanks to the 120 or so people who turned out to enjoy the screening of Veer at the Terrace Theater. It was a wonderful opportunity to gather in support of Charleston Moves. While the film featured activities in Portland, OR, we are lucky to have a thriving cycling community right here at home.
Click here to see a Facebook photo album on the Veer event set up by Charleston Moves Board President Charles Fox.

And, in case you missed it, there was a great piece yesterday in the Post and Courier about the Alleycat Race. And we just enjoyed a highly successful Cycle Chic event. Check out the video on You Tube.

Thanks again for your support!
