Urbanism Goes Boo

Tricktricktrick

City Planner Brent Toderian explains why Halloween is his favorite holiday:

        [I]t's the holiday most dependent on how we design and build our communities.

In city planning and design, there's an old saying about the "Trick-or-Treat Test." It's often brought up in the context in suburban home design: Can kids easily find the front door to your house, or must they poke behind the huge multi-car garage, past the parking asphalt, to ring your bell? Homes that fail this Trick-or-Treat Test aren't exactly welcoming, and not just on Halloween.
