  • How MESH is changing cities - Spacing Montreal
    about a computer driven modernity MESH Cities are not just smart cities MESH Cities go beyond the management of infrastructure to the heart of what makes cities worthwhile their livability Metaphorically MESH Cities are the offspring of an improbable marriage between Jane Jacobs ideals and ubiquitous city computing Their kids in this context are named MESH M Mobile E Efficient S Subtle H Heuristics This is how the www meshcities com website introduces the concept Cities are now home to more than fifty percent of the world s people To accommodate increasing urban populations designers are inventing new ways for cities to do more with less less energy and less waste but also more personalization Fortunately new Internet based technologies allow for real time management of city systems in ways never before possible The technological foundations today s MESH cities are built on improve their efficiency At the same time wireless feedback and information management systems make big cities as responsive to real time individual needs as the towns our grandparents grew up in Back to the Port Lands An early manifestation of that wired city responsiveness played itself out across the Toronto body politic last week Before our new MESH City resilience what Doug Ford proposed might just have had wings Show some slick eye candy add a Ferris wheel and you are more than half way to building out the next Jamestown even if the public senses it is not in their long term interest What the forces behind the plan did not understand is that in today s modern wired cities there is a bottom up feedback loop that cannot be ignored Informed people are connected and they want to be listened to When they re not well I would not want to be the mayor or

  • Bike Counters Find Cycling Trips Have Doubled on Laurier Ave - Spacing Montreal
    to cyclists Bike lanes now take up half of Laurier Avenue and there are as many cyclists as cars on the road Rheault also says preliminary studies have shown a 10 increase in bicycle trips on the Boyer bike path in Petite Patrie between 2010 and 2011 He attributes this increase to the construction of a separated bike path on Christophe Colomb that provides a safer and more comfortable way to cross the CP tracks Since a separated bike path was built under the CP tracks bike trips have increased 10 on Boyer in Petite Patrie And while de Maisonneuve remains the busiest bike path in the city Rheault says that they have recorded as many as 300 bike trips within 15 minutes on Milton street near University Ideally he says this kind of information should affect how the cycling network is designed in particular locations Helping cyclists gain visibility on city streets Bicycle Sensors by Eco Counter http www eco counter com Even after learning where eco counter s sensors were located and what to look for I barely noticed the thin diamond shaped marks in the bike path you can spot one in the photo at the top of the post But each time that a pair of bike wheels cross the loop they interrupt an electromagnetic field and the signal is transmitted to a nearby sensor and recording device Though the technology is developed by Eco counter they are owned installed and maintained by the City of Montreal Once a month a City worker downloads the information and sends it to researchers at Eco counter and McGill university who crunch the numbers Ottawa also recently installed five bicycle counters and will be putting in another three very soon But they have created an even more dynamic system where sensors are hooked up to a modem that transmits the bike tally on a daily basis According to Rheault transmitting data by modem is cost effective compared to manually downloading it More importantly the data becomes easily accessible to the public so anyone can check how many people have cycled Ottawa s Laurier path on a given day This fall Ottawa is taking it up another notch by installing a bicycle barometer which will publicly display the real time bicycle count in a public place Should be a great antidote to drivers who complain that bike paths are underused just because cyclists aren t in gridlock it doesn t mean we aren t using the streets The ten eco counter sensors are currently located on Berri de Maisonneuve 2 locations Saint Urbain Bréboeuf Rachel Parc south of Duluth Pierre Dupuys measuring bikes heading to the Jacques Quartier bridge Côte Sainte Catherine Christophe Colomb and Univeristy Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts A New plan particulier for the East Plateau What does a Starbucks in Jean Talon Market Say About our Urban Landscape Tweet More posts by Alanah Heffez 5 comments Neither the author

  • Tales of Gentrification in a Bohemian City - Spacing Montreal
    higher income ones However this does not happen suddenly Nobody is going to kick you out of your apartment or increase your current rent without your consent It is true however that if you are born to low income parents in a gentrifying neighborhood you might not be able to settle in the same neighborhood as your parents but who wants to do that anyway On the other hand the guys protesting against gentrification that includes the one who wrote the graffitis should stop to think a little bit and realize they are not representing the people Poor people also have pride and are also able to appreciate growth I have never met anyone poor or rich who is not happy to see their neighborhood become a cleaner and more attractive place even if that means rent increases strage residents etc Michael Fish 4 years ago Most interesting Excellent work I especially liked the contribution of Joe Baker a true hero of Montreal and Quebec He is the most important figure in the development history of the city Every good thing about saving neighbourhoods and people in their homes from the nineteen sixties on began with him and the people around him who learned from him M architect 4 years ago My comment is simple may be too simple what is wrong with gentrification Why is gentrification always portrayed as evil When you think about real estate development a part is about money but also offering homes to people who want to live in the city Our society is at a turning point where the massive development of single family houses further away from downtown has to stop Family driven and directed real estate is starting to be implemented by many developers Yes it brings in people that more economics means So what that s life If gentrification doesn t happen in certain neighborhoods we could end up with very scary places like Alphabet City in Manhattan Places that police and people don t want to go Diversity is the key to a city It ensures that everyone lives together and knows or is aware of that everyone isn t equal in our society The media both independent and not so independent have a role to play in it Along with advocates of both visions Development keeps a city alive because it works on changing the places don t work anymore or as well as they use to be There are really bad places in the Plateau And many people still rent there too As is the contrary in Laval or Brossard There isn t much diversity in those places While in Hochelaga my hood there is a lot Of course my household has more economics means than some But it doesn t mean that we are taking someone place Why should we be made guilty for wanting to live in a certain area BTW my household is a rental one From my point of view I don t understand

  • Traces of an unforgotten past: Mile End - Spacing Montreal
    in the way she lets this newcomer into their lives Extravagance seems impossible in a world with so much pain Nathan had told Bella about that exchange as the two of them sat in the back seat of the car he had hired to take them to his wedding They could easily have walked over The synagogue where the wedding was being held was on Hutchison Street just a few blocks away from their apartment on Clark Street and it was a beautiful summer evening But the way a thing starts is the way it continues Nathan felt so it was important to him that every member of the wedding party arrive in as much style and comfort as he could afford For Jews escaping the horrors of mid century Europe Montreal must have seemed at once terribly naive out of touch with the world and an urban paradise Of course trauma is something we can t just sweep away and Lily s past refuses to let her be happy Soon she vanishes from the city and the daughter she gives birth to will grow up without a mother as Lily travels west to seek solace from whatever she has experienced It s a moving lovely novel about overcoming our pasts and defining who we are in a present we can t always control Though the work is fictional this is the world of Mordecai Richler Mile End s brick buildings and restaurants and shops and delis where Yiddish is spoken on the street and there is little distinction between Jewish identity and Montreal identity in the grand scheme of things One only senses the faint traces of this world today walking along Clark Street an old synagogue an Hasidic family on their way somewhere a shop front that used
