Professor Al-Kodmany Quoted in Tribune on Development of Walkable Suburbs

Family Walking in Suburbs

Kheir Al-Kodmany, UIC professor of urban planning and policy, is quoted in a Chicago Tribune article about suburban home buyers seeking more walkable towns rather than sprawling subdivisions. Al-Kodmany credits this two decade shift to municipal planning efforts that created or revived mini-downtowns in traditional suburban centers with easy access to shops, schools, trains and parks.
