I know the feeling. Sad, but true ... we can't seem to get our city to even reach for the low-hanging fruit it seems. This is really about reducing our infrastructure deficit by rethinking the modern infrastructural ideal and redesigning our cities to work with, rather than against, ecological processes, and getting people to think about what goes down the pipe or into the curbside storm drains. I've often wondered why we aren't demanding surface parking lots pay a tax based on square footage of asphalt cover and give a rebate if they install bioswales or permeable pavers, etc. Glad to see a piece in RTH on this important topic, and I definitely echo your sentiments Jason.
