Lyon Protocol

Car free cities. Sounds like a dream, but more and more it's becoming a reality. Although no major cities are 100% car free there are some who have devoted large portions of the center and in some cases created car free zones through out the entire city. Using Lyon, France as the model, The Lyon Protocol sets a very lofty goal: converting large districts to carfree areas.
The Lyon Protocol defines multi step strategy for reaching consensus on how to design and implement such a radical change, involving community input, media relations and political will. The goal is to give the city back to residents by reducing the domination of the automobile and to create a strong local identity.

Strong local identity?
Community involvement?
Sounds like P-town...!
