Urban Designer Matt Tomasulo is passionate about making creative use of public spaces.

Walk [Your City] is now in six continents and and six different communities in Raleigh have been chosen with Tomasulo to increase walkability.

Abstract:
The Triangle is growing apart, separated by geography, politics, transit and identity. Urban planning experts say that the metro area is rated among the worst in the nation due to sprawl and a lack of regional mass transit. Residents say they now view the area as a set of distinct places and it was not always that way. The local governments of Raleigh and Durham are competing with each other, rather than working together to make the area better for citizens. The success of the Triangle region could grow if local officials were willing to work together and the problems created from growing apart are detailed.

Abstract:
A Triangle area art expert discusses the difficulties facing collaboration between the regions actors, musicians, artists, and theater groups. Due to congested traffic and travel times, the area’s art scenes are split between cities. This split discourages collaboration and prevents the scene from growing. This also prevents citizens from attending events and keeps them in their local communities. This prevents people from seeing all of the art that the area has to offer.
