Description: 

John Norquist, CNU's President and CEO outlines the importance of narrower, interconnected street networks, and how connectivity, ranging from the regional scale to the local neighborhood, block and street scale is contrary to common thought, critical to reducing emergency response times. While streets should be as integral as common civic space as the buildings that reside on them are, narrower, connected street networks also contribute to the overall safety and health of a city's design.
