Ian Lockwood
I wish I was going to Buffalo next week for CNU 22 , confab of new urbanists. My closest approach
was sitting in a room with Ian Lockwood this past week.

framework streets
Ian shared his transportation philosophy, spoke earnestly about connectivity, and showed a map
that alternately intrigues and terrifies. What exactly is a framework street? Reserving judgement until it is
possible to learn more. Does the finish detail of the Duke of Gloucester Street qualify for a modern framework street?

Paving bricks are larger…typically 9 ” by 4 “, and much heavier.  One paving brick weighs almost 10 lbs each.  They have at least twice the “crush strength” of typical bricks, and are fired at a higher temperature, which results in an exterior coating that makes them more impervious to water.–Keith

Supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday (July 3) to hold a public hearing on Aqua Virginia’s proposal to provide water and sewer to Zion Crossroads – though the county administrator and country attorney strongly oppose the plan.–Fluvanna Review
