Consistency defines the selection for this month: Planning Livable Communities. Sharon Machlis Gartenberg, author of the site, writes several articles every month on walkability issues. Her articles each month are consistent in both quantity and quality, and February was no different. Ms. Gartenberg is a former member of Framingham, Massachusetts Town Meeting's Planning & Zoning Committee. Her weblog focuses on both local and national livability issues. I cannot recall a time when reading one of her articles that I disagreed with what she wrote, and that is saying something! The site was also a major inspiration for me in creating this site.
Planning Livable Communities will be considered for the 2006 Walkable Neighborhoods Website of the Year award along with the future recipients of the monthly awards.
