I thought I would share an article that appeared in today's Washington Post about the White House Office of Urban Affairs. As land use aficionados well know, a long list of federal policies, including public housing, highway funding, and initiatives encouraging sprawl, have hurt the development of cities. The Office of Urban Affairs will hopefully offer a refreshing change of direction and pace. To date, the Office appears to have done more planning than other activities. Here are some additional thoughts from Bruce Katz (Brookings Institution) on what the Office could accomplish.
