These accords may not address all of the problems that are out there, but you have to start somewhere. You can go from zero to perfect in one step. The accords represent a good beginning. The key is for cities to keep improving and expanding upon this first step.


I believe we can call the accords a success, if for no other reason, the initiation of a discussion of a different framework for measuring the health of our communities than economic or growth related aspects.

I agree that it is a start, somewhat flawed, and aimed at incremental improvement. I also recognize that all points on the curve... from the early adopters to the 'cold-dead-fingers" crowd all need to be moving in the same direction, and efforts like this are an integral piece, in my opinion, to such holistic change.

Thanks for the views and the opportunity to comment.
