Even if you’re not a subscriber to Spacing or a frequenter of the Drake, you’ll know that there’s a new push for urbanism (and an old push against it by a certain beleaguered mayor and his ilk).
The new urbanists have their opponents licked when it comes to data and mapping—they can whip together a mashup faster than Ford find a drivethru—and our fair town does admirably well on one of the measures of desire: walkability. We get a 73%, or “Very Walkable” score on Walkscore.com, which indexes towns and neighbourhoods automatically.
The site says that most of your daily chores can be accomplished on foot in Weston—true, if you ask me—and that there is plenty of transit. The Junction beats us, but we have the chi-chi Baby Point licked. They have a lousy 70%.
