Bill Fulton: What We Can REALLY Learn From Portland

One of my favorite California planners, Bill Fulton, has a wonderful article about learning from Portland Oregon's success in creating an exciting urban area. Like most planners I have always been a huge fan of Portland and its great transport system. Bill's article identifies six lessons from Portland, but rather than encouraging other cities to simply copy these lessons - which many "lessons from Portland" articles seem to do, he suggests that cities try to understand what Portland has done and develop their own strategies for success. Here's a link to Bill Fultons's article What We Can REALLY Learn From Portland.
