major-metro suburbs grew 53 percent, as compared to 23 percent in cities.” In Spokane, we are not unlike other


communities – our homes are old. More than 60 percent of the housing stock in Spokane was built before 1960. The kids are moving back home. Grandpa


and


Grandma can’t keep up with the yard work and chores associated with home ownership. Spokane needs to double or triple down on rehabilitation and energy retrofitting of our community’s homes.


Canary in a Mine Shaft – Crisis Equal Opportunity? The love-hate relationship with


downtown, the city core, for many, has to stop. Sprawl is anathema to anything we understand about resources, food security, jobs, and economic prosperity. The suburbs of the Phoenix area have just linked all the other suburbs into one gigantic conveyor belt of cars moving from strip mall to strip mall, all the while the air is supercharged with more heat, ozone and higher humidity because people moving to the desert want lakefront property, evergreen lawns, fountains and water parks. Even pop culture is zeroing in on the


suburbs. One of my new favorite rock groups, Arcade Fire, has an entire album devoted to the concept of the suburbs. Here’s a telling refrain from one of their songs: Sometimes I wonder if the World’s so small/ That we can never get away from the sprawl/ Living in the sprawl/ Dead shopping malls rise like mountains


beyond mountains/ And there’s no end in sight/ I need the darkness, someone please cut the


lights Leave it to an indie rock band to help paint


a mind-numbing, eerie picture of what many kids go through growing up in America.


A Tale of Two Cities, One World – The Natural Step The two cities – Spokane and City of


Spokane Valley – and the county as a whole are not immune to the same challenges Seattle, San Francisco, San Paulo, Shanghai or Singapore are facing. The hurdles include population, water, delivery of services, financing health, education and aging. Energy efficiency, inputting the life cycle


of all materials used, and relying on nature’s processes, like free sun, water filtering from wetlands and air circulation, are the goals of a new generation of students of design, architecture, engineering and materials sciences.
