Smart Signs' Call for Submissions


SmartSign is seeking interesting, intelligent content concerning parking and urban design for a new web-based project.

· Diagonal parking
· Reverse angle parking
· Designing a better parking garage
· Why “Missing Teeth” in the urban fabric are bad for business
· Why pedestrian-only urban street malls fail.
· Accommodating and "taming" the car
· Environmental issues (storm water runoff/”green” parking lots/mediation)
· Teaching better pedestrian behaviors (carrying canvas bags, planning ahead)
· Sharing space with pedestrians and bicycles
· The high cost of free parking

Content that addresses the issue of signage and privately operated parking lots and structures will be given preference. All contributors must send a brief query first,
