How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

five services in five minutes

Every home should be within five minutes walk of five service--a litre of milk, a library kiosk, a post office, drugstore.... We need a micro-commercial zone to allow these small businesses into every neighbourhood.

    reducing urban sprawl is very widely accepted as being extremely environmentally responsible. However, it often requires careful urban planning, and as such may not be possible for places where urban sprawl already exists (vancouver). My suggestion would be to create legislation to encourage a range of different business within a (ten minute walk sized radius) by providing tax breaks to the first business of each type in the area to register themselves.
