The public spaces are already heavily imbalanced in favor of motor traffic. I believe the initiatives underway are trying to introduce some balance where there presently is little to none. The transportation plan is slowly becoming more inclusive as pedestrian, non-motorized, and transit users realize more meaningful improvements. The motorized users already enjoy the great majority of public space. Also, as the voices of residents in a given neighborhood start to be respected rather than dismissed and marginalized - then the transportation plan will become more inclusive. And then there's the all important step of actually doing. Talking is great but at some point it has to turn into action and results, rather than endless studies and consultations, which at best seem to end in a pilot project only.
