Now that the price of oil has finally changed the way we perceive distance, urban planning in Maine may get the attention it deserves. We place sports fields and town amenities according to how much time the largest number of users take to get there by car. Now, perhaps we can locate these services per how long a walk they are for the most users. This will lead to compact neighborhoods and greater sustainability for our beloved state. Let's embrace the challenge!
