Some spent more time drawing on facilities rather than planning using the Begos. Some focused on giant Bego presidents. <hey all had their positi*es. % . n your ideal urban area, what form of mass transportation would be most prominent2 Dplain how this form of transportation fits into your city design. ublic transportation would be most prominent. >ur stellar road system would easily facilitate a robust and cheap bussing system. Eusses reduce carbon footprint by essentially car#pooling. art 7!

'odern Sustainable Cities n some cities, efforts ha*e been made to impro*e the quality of life for residentsL certain practices ha*e been implemented through go*ernment programs, the city layout has been redesigned andor public works such as schools, parks or mass transportation ha*e been enhanced.

Curitiba, Erail! Curitiba has an incredible amount of green space in the city. n fact, the city is surrounded by an enormous green belt which is populated by numerous plants and animals. <he positi*e effects of this are the support and sustainability in regards to the en*ironment, as well as the wool obtained from sheep in the green belt. % 4. ortland, >regon! ortland@s Eureau of lanning and Sustainability (ES) has worked to promote green building practices , fi it fairs (fairs that help Americans fi broken products instead of buying new ones), home energy regulations, and clean energyM <he result is a city that is not only green, but has a green culture. % 7.
